Of Dutch origin, born in 1947 in Rotterdam, Aart Elshout lives and works since 1978 in France, in the department of Lot-et-Garonne.
The choice to live and create in France is based on the desire to train and find his own authenticity. Born from the confrontation with oneself and the four elements.
This authenticity is nourished by multiple reflections and inner research, in a secluded and natural environment, far from art centers and large cities with artistic influence.
Simply be... relying on his experiences and artistic research over the years.
Spontaneously create ... rooted in the feelings of ineffable moments, conscious and translated into works of art, in dialogue with space and time.
Emotionally engaged in a creative process and in a state of meditation where being and doing become generators of meaning.
