RONALD A. WESTERHUIS
Metres-high steel objects in various geometric shapes: Dutch artist Ronald Westerhuis knows how to leave an impression. With his expertise in abstract art and landscape art, he transforms his visions into tangible images of stature. His home base Zwolle is where all the magic happens. Here, together with the RAW team, he creates 'a world of reflections'. 1, 2 or maybe 20: this is the number of times you see yourself reflected in his works. A moment for self-reflection, an encounter with yourself. It makes his art more than a static object, it is a playful experience for young and old alike.
Over the years, Ronald was not only committed to aesthetic success stories, but also to solidarity-based, positive projects. For example, he was given the honour of creating a memorial in memory of the Dutch victims of the MH-17 plane crash, a project close to his heart. Ronald Westerhuis was christened "an artist of a new generation of artists" by Ralph Keuning, museum director of De Fundatie. From sculptures for private estates to national monuments and symbolic artworks in Shanhai, today you can find Ronald's signature all over the world.
