1959 Born in Amsterdam (NL)

The work of Jan van der Ploeg has it roots in Piet Mondriaan’s Neo plasticism and De Stijl movement connected to Theo van Doesburg. The connection is intensified by his concentration on the act of painting, anachronistic and traditional in contemporary terminology. Van der Ploeg’s wallpaintings exist of different layers of paint, as a result of which a soft and smooth texture arises, comparable to his paintings on canvas. He has developed his own colour-vocabulary, existing of black, white and contrasting tones as pink, purple and orange. An important element in Van der Ploeg’s paintings is variation. The wide area of possibilities that he finds seem inexhaustible. Every mural is different in choice of colour, size, detail and combination. Jan van der Ploeg’s works of art connect painting, sculpture, system and serial production. They function as signs and ornaments.
