Gruwez' work is sometimes considered to belong to the neoromantic movement in response to the new realism of the 60s, with its typical emphasis on the emotions of life, love, disease, decay and death. But in Luuk Gruwez' work this kind of romance is always tempered by a portion of (self) irony.

In his later poetry the subject matter is broader and his style becomes more narrative. He is now a full-time writer of poetry and prose as well as columns, appearing weekly in De Standaard and monthly from 2001 to 2003 in De Morgen. In 2009 he received the Herman de Coninckprijs for his poem "Moeders" from Lagerwal. Tuur Florizoone and Jessa Wildemeersch composed music for these nominated poems.
