Chiel van Zelst ('64 Amsterdam) studied fine arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and at the SVA in New York. His pantings are featured in homes
around the world. The Westcord Art Hotel in Amsterdam hosts a total of hundred fourteen one-of-a-kind murals by van Zelst.
'My style of painting has been influenced by the Old Masters and contemporary Street Art and Punk-rock Graffiti culture,
together they blend into my own way of painting; Bold and Direct, Amsterdam Style.'
Van Zelst makes and sells his works via his gallery and temporary pop up locations.
