Rob de Vries
About The Artist:
Rob de Vries (1963, Amsterdam, the Netherlands) studied at the Amsterdamse Grafische School, where he graduated in 1984. He worked as DTP-operator and designer for various companies. Since 2003 he works as a full-time artist.
A period of intensive study followed. Advanced drawing techniques and a education in realistic painting and 17th century painting techniques.
He is drawing and painting commissioned portraits of people and Classic Cars. For his other work he finds inspiration in old and damaged objects. From a piece of weathered wood to peeled of paint on a American Neon-Sign. The challenge for me is to get all the structures and different materials, like wood, glass, metal and rust, as lifelike as possible on paper or canvas.
His work is in Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, English and American Private Collections.
