”I was born in s’Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands in 1954. I have been a lifelong doodler.My work is influenced by children’s toy’s, folk and indigenous art forms. I am an amateur painter and maker of things. But I spend most of my time doing this and I will continue as long as there are new things to discover….I like my works to be joyous, colorful with a kinetic feel. I’ll work with and on anything available, including old wood, cardboard and all kinds of wonderful junk,” writes John van Orsouw.

To me, life is a most randomly beautiful experience. There is also much confusion and chaos. I have always struggled with dependency issues, but I have also been the luckiest man to ever have lived. There is a type of instability and volatility which has brought me all the heaven, and all the hell that one can imagine. It’s never normal, it’s either blissful ecstasy, or harrowing despair in this little experience of mine.
I briefly attended the Cleveland Institute of Art (1992-1993) but found hanging out at the Euclid Tavern and the Cleveland Museum of Art much more educational.
Music And Art have been a constant force in moving my life forward. Although the past is a constant reminder of promises forgotten. I now make good on the little lies that get me through the night. The reinventing of the dream-self on every new morning. The doorway between the conscious self and the subconscious ideal has been left open. What remains of the journey lies in paint. My Style is subjective to the viewers preconceptions. I am a figure artist. The rest is up for interpretation.
The artistic influences on my paintings are quite varied. I am most influenced by the Symbolist. Which turned into the modern Illustration movement. Everyone from Klimt to Schiele from Bacon and Auerbach to Frazetta and Giger. All my idols are dead. It is my time to start a new generation of dreamers.
All my work is for sale. I am sick of being a slave to my alarm clock
