Dutch-born, Belgian artist Bram Bogart explored painting from a young age and went on to enjoy a distinguished and prolific career. Bogart moved to Belgium in the late 1950s, eventually making it his home. From there, he developed new and inventive painting techniques and worked in the thick impasto style for which he became recognised. It was these captivating, colourful abstract works which placed his work in high demand throughout Europe.
Bogart has exhibited alongside his peers in some of the most important museums and art institutions worldwide. He has been the subject of a great number of solo exhibitions and retrospectives at institutions including the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels; the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst in Ghent; and the Cobra Museum voor Moderne Kunst in Amstelveen, Netherlands.
Bogart died on 2 May 2012 at the age of 90.
