Cowboy Henk is a flamboyant god with a distinguishable blond hairstyle. This significantly oversized guy clad in jeans is known for his unending big heart, helpful nature and confused mind. He is simultaneously one of Flanders' most controversial and beloved cartoon characters.
Cowboy Henk is a meditation on Surrealism and Dadaism, a mix of timelessness and timeliness. Cowboy Henk's figure flows deliberately from Herr Seele's pen. Together with Kamagurka (Luc Zeebroek), they develop the scenarios.
In the exhibition Among the people, the Belgian comic strip history is brought to life by showing original, hand-drawn comic strips, paintings and different, funny Cowboy Henk attributes and gadgets. Herr Seele also offers a look at aspects from his personal world. His passion for painting and his paintings themselves have never been presented to the public in this manner before.
