Christian Dugardeyn


By the use of a multitude of artistic mediums ranging from painting to sculpture, Duga, brings together in his works a particular aesthetic. This Belgian artist finds his roots, his influences, in the primary arts, African art, Oceanian art, Amerindian art, brut art but also in naive art. Detach yourself from academism to create your own style Born in 1963 in Brussels, Christian Dugardeyn (alias Duga) is an artist belonging to the movement of free expression. After an essential passage to the Fine Arts, he quickly emancipates from the artistic techniques taught to refocus on his instinctive emotions. He painted and sculpts viscerally, in a state of regression and on the fringes of contemporary artistic currents. The reappropriation of his influences to give form to his emotions Duga gives free rein to his emotions through different techniques: drawing, painting and sculpture. Among the contemporary artists who have permeated his work, we find, among other things, Basquiat and Combas. From the free figuration movement, Duga is inspired by Aléchinsky, Appel and the Cobra group. Without forgetting Picasso, Schiele and expressionism as well as Dubuffet, Brut Art and Street Art. According to him, an artist cannot remain isolated in his corner, he must open up, soak up influences from the past to reshuffle them and create. At Picasso, Basquiat and in street art, it is the distortions of the characters that interest him with the conservation of a certain anatomical fidelity and a gestural. Street art, scriptures and graffiti, it particularly retains the fluidity and speed of the gesture as well as the explosion of colors.
