About the artist

Rudolf Boogerman

Rudolf Boogerman

Mixed media artist. New to crypto art but seasoned in digital art. 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.

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 to work with 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.

About the Video art

Rudolf played around a lot with 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 initially “Laboratory experiments”. From 2016 to 2019, he worked on a video series called “Patterns and rhythms in nature”.
