Biography

Born in 1961 in Belgium where he still lives and works today, Ronald Dupont is self-educated. He has been exhibited worldwide for the last 20 years including France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, USA (Miami, Washington, California), Lebanon and Dubai. His work features in numerous private, public and corporate collections.

Ronald Dupont's large-scale works of New York scenes perfectly capture the bustle and frantic energy of the city that never sleeps. Views of Manhattan, as seen through the eyes of a European artist, the paintings are an outsider's vision in glorious technicolour. His viewpoint is interesting and unusual, his angles often ones that native-born New Yorkers might ignore.

Dupont started using oil paint, then wax, and now works with Venice turpentine, which enables him to capture in his paintings the vibrating reflections of the city. Often misleading our apprehension of perspective, they open the surface of the painting to a dimension up to now invisible.

The eye enjoys losing itself in the complexity and the richness of his compositions; the bold colours and sophisticated textures. The neons of Time Square ripple as the light, often saturated, melts in the façades, never revealing its source. Dupont portrays a town which is often too quickly visited, nevertheless, any visitor to New-York will recognize through these paintings, the significant and unique atmosphere of this town.
