He has extensive training in lithography, including an M.A. from the St, Lucas Institute of Fine Arts in Ghent, and postgraduate work at the Tamarind Institute, University of New Mexico. De Bruycker travels frequently with his wife and daughter, and states that his surroundings, such as Santa Fe and Granada, Nicaragua, strongly impact the nature of his non-objective paintings, which reflect inner states.

In 2005 there was a major retrospective of his work at the Caermersklooster Museum, Ghent, Belgium.
