Bert de Beul


Bert de Beul (b. 1961) is a Belgian painter from Ghent, who lives and works in Antwerp. Since the mid-1980s, he has created a very coherent body of work that questions the meaning of images. His paintings consist of figurative depictions of everyday life based on pre-existing photographs mostly taken by himself, or coming from books and magazines. De Beul only shows a detail of the original picture, placing the most random element at the centre of his composition – such as a pile of books, a kitchen sink or road signs.
