Belgische kunstenaar Hugo De Putter

De Putter Hugo

Hugo De Putter was a Belgian artist born in Balegem/Oosterzele in 1938 and died in 1990 in Anduze/France. He was a painter, ceramicist and glazier. Husband of the ceramicist De Putter-Blansaer Ria. Education at Sint-Lucas in Ghent (1952-1957) and at the Academy in Ghent (1957-1959). Apprentice of Gaspard De Vuyst, Gerard Hermans, Adriaan Van Heucke, René Bruynseraede, Maria De Keyser and Victor Stuyvaert. Until 1965 worked exclusively as a ceramicist. In his painting, he leaned to post-expressionism, then to symbolism and surrealism. From the press: "It is quite possible that people want to call him cold surrealist, but the term does not seem too clear to us. Actually, H.D.P. a baroque storyteller that is always watched with eager eyes and can be viewed again and again because he hides allusions and it sometimes seems as if the characters have hidden in his work without the artist even knowing it." (H.B., 1982) Also portrayed a series of spells and sayings in his paintings and addressed numerous religious themes in his magical design. Was a teacher in plastic education at the Sint-Gregoriusinstituut in Gentbrugge, then a teacher at the Higher Institute for Paramedical Professions in Ghent. Gave courses in ceramics and painting in his own studio. Mentioned in BAS II and Two Centuries of Signatures of Belgian Artists. (PIRON
