My names Donald Van Gelderen, and I've always had a passion for art, all forms. Art is something that I consider to be used as expression and self-expression. I like to let the audience perceive their own idea's and thoughts about what a piece is suppose to represent, the thoughts and feelings the piece projects, and the emotions. I love a lot of eras, contemporary being my favorite, Rauschenberg being my favorite artist. All of my pieces are original pieces, I do not like to make prints, so in reality each work is really a 'one of a kind'. All prices are negotiable, as I'd love for my pieces to be able to be enjoyed and viewed by many. I'm a young man looking to sore in my passion and follow my dream when everyone say's I am not good enough or I'm chasing a hopeless dream. I'm trying to save to move to San Francisco at the moment, as my home life is terrible, and I feel that the city is my calling. Thank you to all who take the time to view my work!
