The son of a glass blower, Marcel Delmotte spent his entire career in the mining and steel manufacturing Belgian town of Charleroi. He trained at the Universite de Travail in Charleroi from 1914-1919 and first started working as an interior decorator before becoming a full-time artist. He became a successful figure painter with later Symbolist and Surrealist influences. He held exhibitions in Belgium and elsewhere in Europe.
