Abstract patterns and comic doodles
Abstract dazzling patterns, lines and comic doodles become impressive big portraits from a distance. Scholten invites the viewer to a dynamic relation with the artwork. His drawings are almost meditative because of the numerous lines that make the spectator stop and be in this moment. Just the opposite of the time we live in, where we often don’t find the time to stand still and really look and relate to one another.

Prizes
Gijs Scholten is winner of  the Art Prize Binnenmaas 2016 and also winner of the LeasePlan Ongekend award 2015.
