Biography

Hugo Laruelle is a French painter born in 1973 in Maubeuge (France). After finishing his plastic arts studies at the Charles de Gaulle University, Lille III, he got his CAPES in plastic arts and became a professor in a college in Maubeuge. Parallel to his teaching activity, Hugo teaches evening courses at the Maubeuge Artistic Workshop. He installs his studio in this town, and he opens its doors every year in October, during the "open doors of the artists? studios".

The characters in his paintings seem to be both present and absent and to escape time. The canvas opens up a space that seems slow and undisturbed and a time for reflection and introspection.
His models seem serious and distant.

A feeling of "non finito" emanates from the paintings of Hugo.

We feel that the artist has an impeccable technique. He masters drawing, sculpture, the sketches, the color, the light and he manages to grasp the soul of his models.

" I need to surround myself with persons to whom I will give back an image they lent me. I need to feel the essence of what has resulted from meeting them. Depicting a model is almost like flirting.
The relationship we have with the images is fleeting and superficial, some of the works stay in my studio for months before I do something with them."
