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.

Enjoy!

Always nice to see where your work ultimately ends up, the first photo is for a report in a local newspaper 2021, the second photo was taken in 2022, it hangs here in a hallway of a house in Arnhem from the 1920s century. The house has been completely renovated and adapted, beautiful detail except for the painting, the floor tiles, the hanging lamp and the door to the living room. Yes, I am honored that my work is part of this.
