Jan Willem van Welzenis is a painter living in The Netherlands. Colourful scribbles and thick black lines exceed eachother on the paper, the result being a dynamic and in a way lyrical work of art.
“(...) with adulthood comes a certain tension and tightening of mind and body – and the mark on a page can sense that. Yet Twombly somehow managed to remain free and expressive. (...) Dutchman Jan Willem Van Welzenis picks up the torch for the scribble in painting. I recognize the same expression and wonderful statement of freedom as Twombly. Cy would agree, I think. “

“His [Jan Willem van Welzenis] colours and lines fight with each other on the paper to create chaotic,
anarchic images that play their own tune, are in thrall to nobody. Are delightful.”
