About the Artists

1929 , Netherlands

Ad Snijders (1929 – 2010) was an artist, draftsman, collagist and sculptor from Eindhoven. At the age of 12 he started drawing and he never stopped. His style can best be described as expressionistic, figurative art.

As an artist, Ad Snijders is self-taught. This was mainly because he had to go to work immediately after primary school. He started as an apprentice setter at a printing company, but always kept drawing in his spare time. In 1947, at the age of eighteen, he joined Kunstkring de Kempen as one of their youngest members. At a later age he eventually got the chance to study. Thanks to the French government, he received a scholarship to study in 1961 and 1962 at the Académie de la Grande Chaumiére in Paris.

Both Snijders’ themes and his way of working connected to events in the time periods in which he worked. His work was therefore always up to date. During his career, Snijders knew several ways of working. He started as a draftsman, but made his first oil painting in 1955. Painting was immediately self-evident to him. Between 1958 and 1963 Snijders regularly made sculptures of papier-mâché and wood, but also fragile structures of metal. In 1964 he made his final painting and started working on collage techniques. Around 1970 the painted and drawn reality, the figuration, returned to his work.

In the beginning he starts with art mediation, but a few years later also restorations are added. In the first instance he works from home, where the neighbours sometimes wondered where he left all the works of art that he always loaded and unloaded from t...
