LET MET INTRODUCE MYSELF, I'M ROB DE VRIES

I have been fascinated by Photorealism since the late 1970s. I remember it well, I was in my senior year of high school and had drawing and art history as my exam subjects.

In the art history book I saw an image of a painting of an Airstream, one of those shiny American caravans.

MORE ABOUT ME

THE SERIES

Below are some works from the series I am currently working on.

  • AMSTERDAM!

    Different points of view and excerpts of pieces of Amsterdam. Some locations are very recognizable and others, even for real Amsterdammers, are less obvious.

  • NOSTALGIC AMSTERDAM

    Old photos of Amsterdam with matching props that I've collected over the years.

  • MEMORIES OF A HAPPY CHILDHOOD

    All kinds of things from the past that I have
    fond memories of. I think most people of my
    generation, generation X, have those too.
