Game of Checkers
Artist Twan de Vos

Artist Twan de Vos, from 1961- present day,
near Tilburg, Netherlands.


“I find my inspiration in everyday existence. Everything I experience or see you can find back in my artwork. In a humoristic, someway anecdotic way I paint humans and their feelings. Despite the everyday themes and the abundant color use not all the artwork is as cheerful as it looks at first glance, but it is meant to evoke a smile…a smile of recognition.”
  • Artist Twan de Vos attended the Academy of Art in Arnhem and received a diploma in 1993. Twan de Vos began a professional career as an illustrative artist, but his private work includes acrylic paintings, sculptures, lino-cuts and silkscreen prints; he currently has his studio in an old stone factory in the meadows facing the Rhine River in Wageningen.

  • Twan’s co-publisher of the Arts Agenda and co-organizer of the Wageningen Cultural Circuit.

  • Twan de Vos' style is considered as ‘free art’ but shows a blend of Pop and Naïve Art, with much of a cartoon-like focus in his depiction of a variety of themes.

  • The Dutch artist’s depictions always seem to be about people, their relationships and their emotions represented in a vivid and bold palette, where the black and white checkers pattern is a unique contrast to the bright color patterns within the compositional design.

  • Artist Twan de Vos draws his inspiration from his own daily existence and common place experiences and each painting is a collage from the pages of his life during different time periods because as he says, “feelings are timeless”.

  • Twan de Vos' genre themes are depicted in an open, humoristic and anecdotal manner displaying human figures in leisure activities such as the game of checkers or situations involving family and friends; the artwork motif is not always cheerful in its subject matter but it is created to still evoke a smile of recognition of the circumstances or the emotions presented.

  • The checkers game scene has been created by designing the motif in bold, color patterns in a flat and childlike approach but the mood represented within the composition is happy and the checkers players and observers are having fun around the checkerboard; the atmosphere conveyed is relaxed and friendly and the painting evokes a question ~ Who’s going to win?

  • The checkered pattern or a colored variation of it is seen in many of his designs within the clothing, furniture, tables or flooring of the scenes to define the setting, theme or mood.

“…I will only be able to paint a limited number of paintings in my lifetime. My technique is very time consuming because I use a lot of layers of paint to obtain the color intensity and fully realized effects that I desire. I believe in quality over quantity.”

By game of checkers artist Twan de Vos, one of the best artists ever.
