Artists ART William Van de Velde (netherlands)

William Van de Velde, was born in Paris , grew up in the mountains in the South of France, moved to The Netherlands and now lives in Groningen. Early in my youth I already knew that I could not be what I had promised to my mother: "physiotherapist", in order to alleviate her back pain. No! On my sixteenth I had to choose a profession and it was metal constructor. It was after a word of advice from a man from the pub. My mother chose a good crafts school for me in Lyon. So I learned that to form iron. That really helped me! It also helped me to explore the material steel. How much you can do with it. After my military service I came to Charlton and was able to work as a ship restorer. That's how it started. I was in the workshop with traces of materials and tried what you can do with all that iron. My first images I gave away for birthdays, others were sold. The work I made was adopted at the art academy (Minerva). My pictures are mostly figurative (people, animals, fruit, etc.) but my abstract objects can be applied (lamps, chairs, mailboxes).
