Van Welzenis

Who are you and what do you do?

I am a Dutch painter, 32 years old, living in Dordrecht. That’s a city close to Rotterdam.

What inspires you?

The cardboards in my studio, which I paint on. They’re a color bomb of paint. And music, I like music.

What themes do you pursue?

Themes? No, I don’t think of themes.

Why art?

To paint is marvelous.

Name some artists you would like to be compared to.

Ok, this is not an artist but a parallel I could make is the frivolous or excessively ornate of the late Baroque style, Rococo. Although some of my drawings are minimalistic, this extravagantly style with asymmetrical patterns involving motifs and scrollwork, reminds me of my paintings.
