Wouter Stips

Wouter Stips, born in 1944 in Wassenaar, demonstrated a talent for painting from an early age. After studying graphic design in Rotterdam, he explored various forms of visual arts, including exhibitions, animation films in Prague, puppetry in Paris, theater performances, and the creation of books and comics. From 1980 to 1995, he enjoyed a successful career in television, directing and writing documentaries, drama series, and comedies. However, in 1996, he decided to abandon his television pursuits and rekindle his passion for free painting, resulting in his distinctively vibrant, optimistic, and poetically gentle artistic style.
