‘Diamonds For Life’ Exhibitor Rudy van Nieuwenhove

Rudy Van Nieuwenhove was born in September of 1962 in Kortrijk, Belgium. He showed his first signs of creative artistry at the age of nine, as a first year Academy student in Harelbeke. Due to high expectations in academia, Rudy’s artistic journey was delayed. Rudy later went to college, but was drawn to back to artistic training.


Through his curriculum, Rudy rapidly consumed all knowledge and experienced as much as possible on the subject of painting, illustration and more, with an undying thirst. At only nineteen, he held his first solo exhibition. During this age, Rudy focused mostly on ink drawings and worked day and night.  As a result, the exhibition was completely sold out and there was a tall list of orders. In the same year, 1981, Rudy worked with ‘New Gallery’ in Kortrijk along with other artists including the widely celebrated Karel Appel. Many works were sold there, and mainly to buyers in the Middle East. Due to this great success, Rudy was able to establish his own company in 1983. He held exhibitions in just about every town around Kortrijk.


Rudy’s artwork evolved as he worked with oil, acrylic, and lacquer, always working away here and there, in a frenzy of wine, caffeine and sugar. Over many years, Rudy organized his exhibitions with the help of his wife Dorine Vanhie. In the last 10 years, he has become increasingly sought out in France, particularly by champagne houses. They commissioned him regularly to portray exclusive frescoed paintings of their homes for bottle labels and hangings.


Thusly, Rudy attracted much attention and was given the opportunity to push himself to his limit. He was invited to exhibit his works and talents in America, The Netherlands, and Taipei. Unlocking possibilities, Rudy came to want to conquer the world, exploring not only the globe, but equally his artistic abilities; he delved into sculpting, surrealism, pop-art, nudes, dripping and more.


Rudy has so far exhibited in Newport / Harelbeke, Zwevegem , Kortrijk , Deerlijk, Leuven, Waregem, Stasegem, Epernay / France, New York, Ford Lauderdale / Florida Daele , Roermond / Netherlands and Antwerp / Belgium.
