Bob De Groof

Bob De Groof is a self-taught painter, collagist, photographer, outlaw printmaker and installation builder. Born in Antwerp 1959, he spends most of his childhood in the US and Germany where his father, an army officer is stationed in different garrisons. Due, among other things, to incessant school changes, he is soon fed up with studying, and drops out of art school at the age of 16.

From those books and in the streets, he acquires a good linguistic background and now reads, writes and fluently speaks Dutch, French, English and German. (Read more)
