Willy Van Sompel is a Belgian artist who was born in 1948 in Ghent. He is a self-taught painter and author. Van Sompel often stayed in New York. During the 1970s he was mainly active in film and theater, among other things as the organizer of various theater, music and poetry festivals and exhibitions. Author and publisher of screenplays, plays, collections of poetry and concept projects. Only then did he devote himself to painting. His first paintings already contained irony (1980-1981) and depicted naive landscapes. In 1982 he showed himself as a more expressionist, 'wild' painter. For his more recent work he often chooses everyday, easily recognizable and sometimes naive cliché images. Work purchased by the Flemish Community in 1982/1983 and 1990. Mentioned in BAS II and Two centuries of signatures by Belgian artists.
