Gido has received his education at the academy of Tilburg and Antwerp. Since he is active as an artist for many years. His work consists of portraits, free works, calligraphic-works and sculptures.
Hommes works are about life, death, love and turmoil. The intention is to deal with these by exacting their essence in a poetic way. Like a calligrapher, he leaves only essential traces on thecanvas, the paper or when sculpting. Always light of color, drawing and motion, these works invite looking again and again with ever increaing intensity. The works do not unveil everything at once, but demand a searching and attentive spectator, willing to make an effort to enter this world.
