Charles Emmanuel Schelfhout, born in 1951, originally from Ghent, was 15 years old when he entered the Centre des Arts Décoratifs in Brussels.
In 1972, he exhibited at the Aquarius Gallery in Brussels and in 1973 at the Ado Gallery in Bonheiden, following Pol Mara, Roger Raveel and Gilbert Decock.
Constructivist dedicated to black and white, the criticism is unanimous.
Nevertheless, he swapped the brush for the pen and signed and published a number of remarkable works.
After a period of figurative works, he resumed his study of forms and, 50 years after his debut, presented a new evolution of black and white.
