City Impressions

“Imaginative, seemingly uncomplicated, with powerful striking contrasts”

That is probably the best way to describe the representations of Dutchman Mark Raven (1956). Since 1987 the self taught artist has been creating art, that almost always depicts some aspect of his hometown Amsterdam.

“My passion for this city is obviously related to the fact that I was born here. But the city’s atmosphere with its canals, its decorative gables and its culture also contributes to its inspirational character.”

-Mark Raven

“You will find artwork related to Amsterdam, of course, but also of other places that have inspired me. There’s a selection of prints, but also of drawings and sketches, some of which I hope to turn into a more definitive form in the future.”
