Bas de Wit

Bas de Wit (b. 1977) is a Dutch contemporary painter and sculptor. From 1996 to 2000, he studied at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design and the Higher Institute for Fine Arts in Antwerp. De Wit combines horror and absurdism, as well as humor, in his sculptures and paintings. In 2004, De Wit won the Parkstad Limburg Prize and in 2008 he won the Koninklijke Subsidie voor Vrije Schilderkunst (Royal Award for Modern Painting).

De Wit’s artworks have been exhibited in Galerie Ramakers in The Hague, the Bonnefantenmuusem Maasticht, Nest in The Hague, the GEM Museum for Contemporary Art in the Hague, Museum Bommel van Dam in Venlo, the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and Von Rosen Gallery in Keulen. Bas de Wit was a participating artist in the Framer Framed group exhibition Koempels from 22 October to 6 December 2015, curated by Lene ter Haar and in cooperation with Rik Meijers. In addition, his work is included in several collections of art institutions, as well as in corporate collections.
