Roger Raveel

Belgian 1921 - 2013

Roger Raveel was born on July 15, 1921 in Machelen-aan-de-Leie, a village near Ghent where he always lived and worked until his death on January 30, 2013. He studied at the Municipal Academy of Deinze and the Royal Academy for Fine Arts of Ghent. His teachers included Hubert Malfait and Jos Verdeghem. Through his friend Hugo Claus he encountered painters of the Cobra group such as Karel Appel and Corneille in the early 1950s. Raveel nevertheless decided to take completely different paths with his practice as a painter. In 1962 he spends three months in Albisola Mare (Italy) where he works and exhibits with artists such as Lucio Fontana and Asger Jorn.
