Ergo Ronald

Ronald Ergo is a Belgian artist born in Watervliet in 1936. He is a painter, draftsman and graphic artist. On his website we also find: a typographer, bibliophile, typesetter, printer and publisher. He describes himself as a self-taught and lone wolf. He followed a graphic education at the HIGRO in Ghent. Until 1963 he worked for the graphic departments of Snoeck-Ducaju and De Standaard. As far as painting is concerned, he is indeed self-taught. He initially found his inspiration in woman, love and death. “My latest paintings are almost mystical events for me that come about slowly and with difficulty and require some effort from the viewer. They are images of an intense longing for an imaginary lost paradise, here and there enriched with typography, signs or aphorisms that make sense to me, abstracted around a core idea” according to Ronald Ergo in 1985. From 1976 he also conceived and realized artist's books and bibliophile editions. . In 1981 he was co-founder of De Prentenier, an association that wanted to promote the bibliophile book. He is also Pedestichter of De Schone Lier. He produced traditional bibliophile editions in collaboration with Michel Seuphor, Garmt Stuiveling, Jaroslay Seifert, among others. He was laureate of the Print and Poetry Prize in Deurle. He traveled all over Europe and also visited Egypt and Israel. His work can be found in the Print Room in Brussels and Antwerp, among other places. He is mentioned in BAS I, II and Two Centuries of Signatures of Belgian Artists. (Piron, ronaldergo.be)
