About the artist
Mixed media artist. He uses his camera like a brush to create moving images, often expressing, yet not limited to, abstracted ideas about human nature and (r)evolution. Rudolf played around with primitive webcams before he got himself a Sony HDR-FX1 camcorder with which he filmed all his Wooden Dimensions artwork. Later on, he created various experimental short films, which he called “Patterns and rhythms in nature”(see Video art).
Since October 2020, he works primarily on digital art in the form of NFTs using video, sound, photography, Artificial Intelligence (machine learning/gan) and sporadically 3D.
He went to a Graphic arts school (SISA) in Antwerp (Belgium). For a period of time, he became an apprentice of several artists where-under Eduard Leibovitz (glass sculptor), with whom in 1985 he rented an art studio in Antwerp. Next to his artwork, he made a living as a freelance illustrator/graphic designer, working primarily for advertising agencies and publishers.
He moved to the UK in 1990 where he began his art series. He created several projects: “Mirrors on the Wall”, “Travel Series”, “Wooden Dimensions” and “Lost Corners“.
In 2007 he moved back to Belgium, creating primarily art videos and cardboard artwork, the latter he filmed initially to demonstrate, later on the cardboards became actors in his art videos.
From October 2020, under the name of his alter ego Raboo, Rudolf created several art series inspired by architecture and the Dutch painter Escher, using artificial intelligence and image editing. More info: 4D Architecture
