Rob van Doeselaar
Changing colors
After finalizing the Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Art in Amsterdam, Rob van Doeselaar makes figurative paintings, woodcuts and lithographs, depicting scenes from street life in Amsterdam.

In a next period his art starts developing into abstract forms in which color and guesture of painting are the main modes of expression. In his method of painting transparent layers and usage of stencil shapes, he shows his love for printing techniques. He also experiments with putty knife, scissors, collage, paint roller and monoprint.

During this time he is influenced by trips to Sicily with the fascinating volcanic landscapes, to Greece's old culture, to Andalusia's Arabic art. A three months stay in Gujarat (India) has a major impact. Rob's work becomes brighter and more colorful.
