About the artist

Willem Burten (°1932) had an exciting and long carreer as illustrator in advertising & amusement. 

Through several agencies in Amsterdam and Brussels, he worked for international brands & media. He also worked years for the Efteling where he made all the drawings for a popular section in the theme park (Het land van Laaf).

He kept on working for different clients until the age of 75. After his retirement he chose to create more out of his passion for colours. More abstract, non-figurative designs became his inspiration.

Nowadays Willem makes about one new painting every two months. He hangs most of his paintings in his home. Sometimes he sells one. The selection of the original, signed works that he sells can be found on this site.
