Huib van Vugt was born on 20 April 1923 in 's-Hertogenbosch as the youngest of six children. His parents had a bread and pastry shop. After primary school, Huib went to the KTA (Royal School for Art, Technology and Craft) in Den Bosch, where he successfully completed the art department. During this training he took private lessons with portrait painter Wim van der Plas, a pupil of Isidore Opzomer from Antwerp.
Then he followed the training as a drawing teacher at the Rijksnormaalschool in Amsterdam. From 1953 to 1968 he was employed as a purser at KLM. From 1981 until his death on 4 October 2008 he lived with his friend Emile Consten, first in Harmelen and later in Oisterwijk.
