In December the booklet “my view on art” was published.
In this entertaining and visually attractive must-have, 28 visual artists show their work and share their motivation, thinking and doing.
Because all 28 artists show 1 to 3 works of art accompanied by their view on art, an interesting insight is given into how the artist himself looks upon art. I present 3 recent works of art, accompanied by my personal View on art.
The booklet, in Dutch, is available for €9.95.
However, anyone who purchases an artwork from John DutchArt before March 31, 2022, can get the booklet for free by mentioning code KijkOpKunst at your order.
If you would like to know more of how I see art and where I get my inspiration from, than read on, on this page "What inspires an abstract painter".

The Akun is a new Dutch payment method introduced in 2022. A means of payment with which art and art-related matters can be (partly) paid for.
Initially, Akun art notes of 2, 5 and 10 Akun are in circulation. After that, 1 and 20 Akun notes are added to the series of Akun art notes.
An Akun has the value of €0,10.
An Akun Art Note of 5 Akun is therefore worth 50 Euro cents.
The Akun is not legal tender, but it does have a fixed value linked to the euro.
Akun notes are available in two sizes and six different colours.
The 1, 2 and 5 Akun notes are the same size as a 10 euro note. The Akun art notes with a denomination of 10, 20 and 50 Akun are the same size as a 50 euro note.
More than 200,000 Akun notes will be put into circulation in 2022, each with a unique number.

Akun art notes are valid for 3 years from the year of issue indicated on each note.

At the end of 2021 I discussed with the art curator of the Hilton the opportunity to present my art at their hotels. During those meetings we also discussed preferred structure, style and colour schemes for the paintings that will go to the Hilton. So that the paintings best reflect the design and style of the Hilton.
The first of these modern abstract paitings, rich of techniques, with bright colours and strong contrast, are now on display at the reception desk of the Hilton Düsseldorf.
Until April 2023 you can find my art at various Hilton Hotels all over Europe.
