MUGO (1953)


Until one year ago i had not heard of MUGO, but a recent auction appearance triggered my interest in this artist. Truly original and hardly known outside Gent in Belgium. But this artist has kept his childhood alive and uses it for his drawings and paintings. Perhaps a little childish but certainly recognisable and a style which you will not forget. It looks a bit like the early british prints from the beginning of the Twentieth Century but transferred in time to make these by subject and appearance more 21th century.

I love these works by MUGO and that is the reason i recently bought a seceond copy of the Mugoland book. Published i a Mugo tin making this a truly remarkable object and a great collectible. The tin+ book is now available at
