Starting in 1945 he worked (geometrically) abstract. In 1968 his style became Concrete art. In 1974 museum Fodor in amsterdam dedicated to his work.

Quote from Georg Ruyter, from the catalog fodor 20:
“In general, I work with two opposing elements, which together form a totality that is both static and dynamic. I call it concrete design, something that asserts itself and is based on the properties of the surface and the material to be used. From this also follows the color scheme for each painting.”
