Arend Kuiper ( 1952, Assen ) was educated at the Fine Arts Academy Minerva in the City of Groningen, from 1972 until 1978. His specialisation: painting and drawing.
Arend Kuiper is rather taciturn.
My environment is never of that kind as I would wish it to be. Therefore I paint a world as I deem desirable. An interior with or without a model, a still - life or a landscape get most of my attention, whereas the expression of a certain mood is my main consideration, which a I try to intensify by means of color.
This website can only indicate the fact that Arend Kuiper is successful in his approach, since his paintings are moments of moods of still and mere beauty.
