'I like to make my art raw and direct. I can am hardly ever satisfied with the result and to me a painting is only finished when it's sold.'
Chiel van Zelst ('64 Amsterdam) studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and at the School of Visual Arts in New York. His work is being
featured in many homes around the world. His style of painting has been influenced by the Old Masters and
Contemporay Street Art and Grafitti Culture. Together they blend into his own
style of painting.'
Van Zelst makes and sells his work via his gallery in the center of Amsterdam.
