Bram Bogart is a Dutch/Belgian abstract painter. He is also known as Abraham van den Bogaert.
Before and during World War II, the artist made figurative paintings such as landscapes and still lifes. Due to the restrictions in the war years, he had to use unconventional materials such as putty and sand mixtures. The fascination for texture and form continued later in his further abstract work, which became increasingly elementary and powerful.
Bogart is often cited as one of the informals. Although he was never a member of the Informal Group, he is one of the artists who condensed the informal painting style into an essence that cannot be found anywhere else.
He worked in The Hague from 1943 to 1948. Alternated with stays in Delft and France. Later he moved to Belgian Limburg where he bought a castle with large studios.
