Inspired by Rembrandt, the impressionists and European comics, Douro, Ontario based artist Rob Niezen explores stories of contrast of colour and of light and dark. He views the ordinary from extraordinary angles or at extraordinary moments. He studied art at Vrije Akademies in The Hague and Delft, the Netherlands, and at the Art School of Peterborough, Canada.
