Ruud de Wild

'My whole life I'm struggling with destruction and edification. Just like a snake who cast off its skin and moves on new, I am combining long repressed emotions captioned in lyrics, written by others. The canvas becomes my confidant. And when finished, it shows how everything can change if you deal with the confrontation with your own conclusion. That you can move on and that you can leave things in the past.'

Ruud was born on April 24, 1969 in Hilversum. He grew up as a second youngest in a family of 11 children. Ruud lived his life since childhood with two passions: music and typography. The typography seems almost innate, partly because he comes from a printers family. His father was a graphic artist. Ruud was always found in the design studio. Here he developed his love for letters and typography.
Ruud started painting when he was about twenty years old. His works are clearly a marvelous combination of his devotion for typography, letters, lyrics and music.

Besides his paintings, Ruud makes various other art statements. He designed a book cover for Ronald Giphart, an album cover for a Dutch rock band and he designed a room at the Hotel Americain in Amsterdam. He also made several exhibitions, for example in the Museum Jan van der Togt in Amstelveen. His work can be found in many private and corporate art collections from all over the world.
