Biography Bert Wouters
Contemporary artist Bert Wouters (1959) paints since the age of 48. Born in a small village he was raised in a family that lacked warmth and safety. After a technical education his restless soul fled home to the city at the young age of 17. He became a young businessman and owned among other businesses a café and an Ice-salon. The Amsterdam based artist developed his own recognizable style from scratch. The colorful world of Wouters is among other things inspired by architecture, constructivism and Art Deco. A dramatic change in his life (divorce) made it possible for him to reach out for his own creative source within. Now this creativity was available for him he became in a very short period of time the original artist he truly is. The former entrepreneur developed a line of merchandise products from his own art which is for sale in the museum-shop of Museum Het Schip and in over 40 shops in Amsterdam and other places in the Netherlands.
