"De Wallen" is Amsterdam's red light district. This large painting is an homage to the strength of all these women working under adverse and humiliating circumstances in red light districts all around the world. They are strong and beautiful, yet at the same time vulnerable. I want to manifest their dignity and remind everyone of us about the fact, that some people seem to forget that they are human beings, like you and me.
This expressionistic painting is a unique piece of art, containing all of the typical ingredients which best define my way of painting: Gross-motor-skilled, rough, unpolished, authentic, impatient and full of energy.
This professional quality oil painting is done on high quality canvas and will be shipped unmounted and rolled in a tube, together with the unmounted wooden frame. The edges are painted and the artwork is ready to hang.
Colors: yellow, green, red, white, blue, black. All mixed, diluted and overlaid amongst themselves in different intensities.
My signature will be found on the back of the painting, unless –upon request- you wish me to sign on the front side. This painting includes a Certificate of Authenticity.

IMPORTANT: The images in context are not 100% in scale and are for display purposes only. I have done my best to adjust the size of the painting as realistically as possible into the background picture.
