More than 300 Awards....


O-SEKOER in Cartoon Gallery on
http://www.cartoongallery.eu/englishversion/exhibitions/



Belgian cartoonist Luc Descheemaeker (°1955) with the 'pen name 'O-SEKOER' is teaching art and culture in the Institute of Saint-Joseph in Torhout. He makes cartoons and humorphotographs and is winner of just not 300 international cartoon awards. Sekoer... 'Mr. Sekoer' to the foreign tongue speakers that cannot quite fathom the phonetically transcribed Flemisch pun in the comic artist's nom de plume, O-SEKOER, on the French 'au-secours or the English 'help' - all in capital letters and fully hyphenated between the-O and the -S.


De Torhoutse cartoonist Luc Descheemaeker 1955° (O-SEKOER) tekent sedert 1979. Zijn tekeningen hangen de wereld rond in verschillende cartoonmusea. Jaarlijks neemt hij deel aan een tientallen internationale humorfestivals en honderden van zijn werken werden gepubliceerd in meerdere cartooncatalogussen. Hij behaalde in de voorbije 40 jaar net geen 300 internationale prijzen.

Hij combineert grafische- en digitale technieken met mekaar. Computer, scanner en printer zijn deel geworden van zijn tekentafel. Pastelkrijt, oliepastels en kleurpotloden leiden de dans van zijn fotobewerkingen.

De actualiteit, oorlog en vrede, armoede, mens en milieu, vluchtelingencrisis... en de wereld van de kunst behoren tot zijn favoriete thema's. Hij zoekt in de absurde wereld van het ochtendnieuws de inspiratiebron voor zijn cartoons. Met scherpe pen en bedekte spot her-schept hij de wereld van mens en media. Onbeschaamde bitterheid kleurt bij momenten zijn wantrouwen tegenover de medemens.

Hij hangt zijn tekeningen in oude kaders – genageld en geplakt – als gerecycleerde objecten uit een archief. De cartoons van O-SEKOER gaan in conflict met heden en verleden, als hersenkronkels in nooit geziene déjà vu's…
