About the Artist

Wouter DERUYTTER was born in Roeselare Belgium in 1967, and attended The Royal Academy of Art in Ghent. He then went on to study with Nan Goldin, Duane Michals, and Bruce Weber as an international scholarship student at New York's ICP. Since that time he has exhibited in prestigious venues such as Marlborough Gallery, Robert Miller Gallery, and the Foundation Cartier. His photography was renowned for its images of Rodeo Cowboys and people in the masks and costumes of their identity—ranging from drag queens to circus performers.

He has written several books on photography, including Brussel...? (1990), McDermott & McGough: Anachronism Abroad (1994), Wouter Deruytter: Knights of the Impossible (1997), Cowboy Code (1999, essay by John Wood), and Billboards, New York (2006, essay by Vicky Goldberg) and Nazar. He has held several solo exhibitions at museums, including the Musei Centrale Montemartini in Rome, the Museo de Arte Carillo Gil in Mexico City and the Chelsea Art Museum in New York. Wouter Deruytter currently works in Minneapolis.
