Biography

Jeroen van der Velden was born (1972) and grown up in the country side (small) city Ede. At young age he was inspired by the big theatrical paintings of Carel Willink that he saw during museum visits with his parents. Later on is attention was drawn by the filmic and atmospheric works of Edward Hopper. Examples of  contemporary artists he admires are Eric Fischl and Mathijs Roling. From the moment that he in 2002 started living in Amsterdam Jeroen put a lot of effort into his development in the figurative art. In these years he learned a lot from fellow painters. For years he participated weekly in model drawing sessions to improve his skills. Further he developed himself mostly as autodidact.

Van der Velden produces realistic paintings in impressionistic style. He paints mostly landscapes and cityscapes, but also people and interiors or combinations of these subjects. Atmosphere and composition are the most important decision points during the choice of is subjects.
