A loving Dutch lioness springs from different hearts. Her eyes stare deep into two elegant wine glasses, in which the red juice differentiates itself from the white. Is this lioness intoxicated or does her lion-heart reveal the love and desire for her partner? A lost farmer transcends from Mother Earth and lets all kinds of grapevines grow in the deep-blue starry sky. Pioneering is not new to him. Beautiful colorful bunches of grapes surround the landscape. He is the first person in the world to cultivate a bunch of rosé colored grapes!

Toyism Paintings

Toyism paintings are nothing if not bizarre but recognizable imageries drawn from reality, the surreal, and fantasy. The intense play of lines, shapes, dots and colors is intended to help open the viewer’s mind. And to critical thinking about the human condition in the present day world. Toyism is figurative, contemporary and based on a story. These stories can cover all kinds of subjects, from happy to critical or serious subjects. Toyism paintings are very labour intensive. Every painting consist of several layers of paint. Making the colours bright and vibrant and able to withstand the test of time.

Paintings are created by a mixed group of professional artists from around the world with diverse cultural backgrounds and working in various disciplines. Yet all artists have a like-minded view of how to experience this art and inspire each other. No matter their own backgrounds or beliefs, everyone can express themselves in this style without losing their own value or feeling. Therefore every toyist can influence and enrich the style. Hence toyists tell their own story and depict it.
