Didier Maghe lives and works in Belgium, in Europe.

 
After studying drawing (1971-1974) and painting (1991-1998) at the Academy of Fine Arts of Binche, he perfects his skills in the study of nudes at the Academy of Fine Arts of Charleroi.
In 1999, he discovers the "Maghians," and although he will still continue painting nude models for a few more years, in an expressionist style with bright tones and vigorous brushstrokes, it is with these new “friends” that he will chart his course.

With them, the colours of his paintings will become lighter and the features softer. From these congenial figures with rounded shapes will be born sculptures realised in clay, polyester or bronze.
But he also becomes an author and illustrator with his “Maghian stories,” using simple but philosophical language.
The artist holds workshops as well and from time to time conferences.

If one word could sum up his current work, it would be “happiness,” as incarnated by his Maghians.
