Ewoud de Groot lives and works in Egmond aan Zee, a coastal village in the Northern Netherlands. He is recognized as a rising star in wildlife painting, bringing a truly unique perspective to the genre. His work strives to find both a balance and tension between the representational and the abstract, the traditional and the contemporary. For de Groot, painting wildlife is not an exercise in rendering all the painstaking details. Instead, his work is an ongoing experiment of composition, color and technique, concerned with conveying a sense of mood and atmosphere found in the natural world.
