Luc Tuymans is one of the most influential figurative painters working today.Born in 1958 and based in Antwerp, he has exhibited since 1985, emerginginternationally in the early 1990s as an artist who has addressed not just thecontinuation of painting's relevance but subjects as difficult to represent asthe long-lasting traumas of war, colonialism, and everyday violence. Tuymanshas also been a filmmaker, a curator of his own art and its context, an exhibitorof other artists past and present, and an eloquent writer on his work and thatof the image-makers, thinkers, and authors who affect him. His pictures areghosted by language, always in a relationship with their precisely consideredtitles and the constant articulation of reflections on their themes and ideas.
