My Name is Oskar W. Rug. I am a painter, illustrator, portraitist, collagist, sculptor, conceptual artist, image-maker, story-teller, a native of the Odenwald-Region in Germany, convinced European and world-citizen.  


ART IS RUG is basically the result of extensive travelling, passionate research, and the testing and fine-tuning of a variety of artistic techniques. All these factors have contributed to my unique style.  


My artworks allow me to tell a story connecting the dots between the past, the present and the future. There is always a picture behind the picture, and the stories of our past are the input for the images of tomorrow.


I hope this brief intro has made you curious to learn more about my oeuvre and the underlying concept, and I cordially invite you to visit my gallery because, as we all know: A picture is worth more than a thousand words.
