Huub Ragas was born in Eindhoven. Since 1992 he lives and works in Tilburg. His paintings are often surreal cityscapes, on which for example flying fish regularly accompany these images. Also portraits of people are a favourite subject. His work is characterized by a rich colour palette, often painted on a dark background. His paintings have been exhibited e.g. in gallery Haaghs (The Hague, The Netherlands), Chiancao (Italy), Hamburg (Germany) and Tokyo (Japan). His smaller paintings can be found in the galleries of Carre d'artistes in Europe permanently. In recent years he designs stained glass in collaboration with glass atelier 'Tegenlicht'.
