Roger Remaut Wikipedia
Rogier (Roger) Remaut (born Ostend, 17 August 1942) is a Belgian painter (material art). Using mixed media (acrylic), his works are constructions of material incorporating objects found, texture, layers of paint and graffiti. The paintings are built up slowly with many layers of matter and paint.
Roger Remaut studied art at the Ostend Academy under artists Gustaaf Sorel, Maurice Boel and Willy Bosschem. He then followed a course at the Westhoek Academy. As a painter he is an autodidact.
He had his first exhibition, together with his brother Pierre Remaut, in 1982 in Galerie de Pepperbusse in Ostend.
