About the artist
Alexander Verduijn den Boer was born in The Hague, Netherlands in 1958. He attended the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, where he earned his Bachelor of Fine Art in Drawing and Painting in 1983.
Alex paints and draws cityscapes, the periphery of the city, industrial sites, and ports. Broken, wasted, and out-of-use objects or people are a constant source of inspiration to him. He always draws on location. It fascinates him how the Dutch landscape, which has always been determined by agricultural use has changed completely in the past century, and how little of it has been preserved. By contrast, he also works in Spain, where human activity is void in a vast landscape. He specializes in linocut prints, charcoal drawings, and oil painting.
