Jaap Kuijpers (1948-2018) was an artist who loved to travel. On the road, often by bicycle, he made sketches and worked them out in his studio. He left behind a large oeuvre of paintings, drawings and spatial work. His work has recognisable lines and clear, almost transparent colours. Jaap was a born draughtsman and visual storyteller. Actions and characters in his landscapes come from a very personal mythology. His imagination is triggered by concrete observations on his travels and the history of places where he finds himself. Gradually, the depiction of the landscapes becomes freer, less realistic. Jaap was also a passionate teacher and creative therapist who managed to motivate and stimulate many students and psychiatric patients.
