Bas Sebus 01A

Bas Sebus (1961) developed a style that shows familiarities with the Dutch school of realistic painters as it concerns the technical merits. His conceptual approach however, differs a lot and is rarely found in the world of Realism. 

The content of his images originates from philosophical and literary sources, resulting in paintings with ‘an idea’ and a highly communicative appearance. 

This quality shows a striking turn in fantasy in his paintings used as book covers for books produced by the Dutch publishers The Lemniscaat and the World Library. Recognition by the art world itself came with the twofold participation on the prestigious exhibition “Koninklijke Subsidie voor Vrije Schilderkunst” in the Royal Palace in Amsterdam and with the assignment of a governmental subsidy (basis stipendium).
