Peter Walschots studied drawing and painting at
Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam.
His paintings are stories made of shapes,colours and textures.
When you behold a painting, you behold stories.
Peter's paintings are dynamic.
Colours and shapes blend and contrast, you will see rough and
smooth surfaces, fanciful lines, and fragments of words and images
that sink in and out of focus. New details continue to emerge.
The longer you look, the more these stories come to life.
Stories about the sea, ships, lively harbours.
Stories that leave the sound of seagulls in your ears and the
taste of sea salt on your lips. Stories that immerse you.
These paintings draw you in. This is Peter's magic;
he takes you on a journey.
Peter Walschots has frequent exhibitions in the Netherlands and abroad.
