Entrance Hallway Paulus de Groot

Paulus de Groot, born with “Down Syndrome”, grew up in the art circle of the seventies, wanted to become an artist, like his father, Karel de Groot.

Paulus mainly paints his own inner-world, a world which is often restless and can be read as a diary. The events and experiences of Paulus are being reproduced in colour and shape. The death of the cat, the loss of “Daddy Karel”, the discovery of sexuality, the search for limits. The homosexuals, making love with enormous pimols, are painted with bright expressive colours, the nose is mostly placed between the eyes, breasts and navel do not differ in size. He looks for the extreme in horror movies, from the videotheque. He translated these movies in his expressive work. Vampires with blood on their teeth or scary monsters and zombies populate his paintings.

Besides his bizarre themes, that look sweet and innocent as for expressive language, Paulus is also painting portraits of people in his environment, often family members, Karel, Toos or his sister Anna Maria. But you can also find some of my colleques in his work. A beautiful work is “The gate of the swan”, for Mommy Toos.
