The artist

As his parents did not allow him to follow his artistic heart, Edwin was forced to study chemistry. In his free time he started to draw cityscapes with a nib on paper. Approximately 10 years ago, he pursued his artistic path by going to the Art Academy where he took masterclasses. In this time, he studied drawing, anatomy, perspective, painting and in particular the techniques of the Old Masters. Edwin is intruiged by their work as the evidence of the sustainability of their works hang in musea world-wide. This is the quality Edwin wants to deliver: sustainable artworks that last for centuries. It was meant that he had to study chemistry. It now helps him achieving his goal, as a usual art academy would not have provided him. He studied tractates of the old masters, the chemistry of pigments, supports and paint and this revealed him the secret why these century old works are still in excellent shape.
