Dieter De Schutter: King

At the request of the Flemish-Dutch House deBuren eighteen young Flemish and Dutch authors each brought a painting from the Rijksmuseum back to life. They wrote a new text about an old work from the Gallery of Honour, based on one key question: what do you see when you look at these paintings through gender glasses? Dieter De Schutter drew a graphic story inspired by the masked figure on a ferry in a 370-year-old river landscape. ‘I can never step out of line.’

Dieter De Schutter’s (b. 1992) illustrations stand out for their playful approach and clear and dynamic visual language. His vivid drawings invite the viewer to move a step closer to figure out what’s really going on in each scene. His illustrated stories have won him the Greenhouse first prize at graphic arts festival GRAFIXX and a special mention at East London Comic Arts Festival x WeTransfer.
