Luc Tuymans is considered one of the most significant and influential contemporary painters today.  Born in Belgium , he began to study art in 1976. He concentrated on painting in a time when others thought this medium had lost its relevance, in a time of  information many thought this a very conservative form of expression.  Tuymans work is sourced from photographs television and film, and the range of his imagery deliberately resists being categorised. His ideas are not expressed explicitly but implied through subtle hints and allusions.
