He was a true city specialist some years ago, showing the ordinary story of the streets and inhabitants until the day he stopped teaching art as a normal teacher and then as the Director of the Art School in Arlon. It was just before year 2000 and everything was on the move.

Serge Back (1946) an engraver and a painter was trained in the Art Schools of Brussels and Watermael Boitsfort where he worked with top art teachers, after then he started a long period of exhibitions without appealing to managers or public relations officers but quietly, in some good galleries. He was, at the time, a permanent artist of the warm full gallery L’Estampille, specialised in engraving that nobody ever succeeded to.After the 2000 year change, he suddenly turned to the sea and his realm became full of ships and vessels, harbours and embankments…without any sailor or human silhouette. Everything is in the invisible part of his works, men are supposed to be there and to work there but they are an invisible people supposed to come and go in the canvas and the gouaches.

He is now a member of the Belgian Marine Painters, a strict and confidential group it is difficult to enter and since a few years never went away from the sea. Still a figurative painter he never recopied himself, no cc at all nor photography effect because he always has this famous touch that makes an original painting never will be a mechanical picture, because of the last touch it shows up.

Brand new! The painter is also an occasional photographer and will show his snaps for the first time !
