Belgian, 20th – 21st century, male.

Born 1949.

Painter, engraver, lithographer.

Désiro went through a major Expressionist period. His Crucifixion in Red (Crucifixion en Rouge) shows the painter in a studio cluttered with paintings, in the middle of painting or crucifying a larger than life, suffering Christ. In his later work, he gave his abstract compositions a circular dynamism.
