Welcome to my website ruudrouspopart!

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ruud Rous, and i was born in Amsterdam, (1958) later moving to the city of Arnhem where i studied at the Graphic School and currently reside. Due to circumstances outside of my control i was not able to pursue a career in the arts at the time, as this was in 1975 when there was a lot of uproar in the Graphic world. Because of this i decided to go back to school to study for my career as a technician.

In 2009, i started painting. At first this was purely for myself, but after my friends began requesting me to do paintings for them i started holding public exhibitions as well. I've always had a penchant for the works of Roy Lichtenstein along with his style of PopArt. Inspired by this, i specialize in painting faces, close-up and magnified, with an abundance of cheerful and vibrant colours.

PopArt is a movement in modern art. Among others, some well-known names are Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, David Hockney and Jasper Johns.

For a sampling of my work please feel free to look around on my website.
