John Van Orsouw Exhibition

Self-taught artist John Van Orsouw was born in the Netherlands. “My work is influenced by children’s toys, folk and indigenous art forms. I am an amateur painter and maker of things. But I spend most of my time doing this and I will continue as long as there are new things to discover…I like my works to be joyous, colorful with a kinetic feel,” the artist states. For more information about his work, visit his website.
