Darius Hecq-Cauquil was born in Charleroi, a city in southwestern Belgium, in 1950. At the age of 12, he began learning the art of tapestry with his mother, the master-weaver Yvette Cauquil-Prince, who wove tapestries based on the works of Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst and other famous artists. His father, Emile Hecq, was a painter.  


Darius Hecq-Cauquil has been participating in exhibitions since 1976. He held over 40 solo exhibitions in France, Belgium, Spain, Japan and other countries. His works are included in French national collections, including one from the Centre Pompidou. In Lithuania, his art is being exhibited for the first time. The exhibition Reconnection with Origins presents 20 of the author’s works, including tapestry, compositions created from sawdust and oil on canvas, oil decorated stone and driftwood sculptures.
