Drawings

, Huub Niessen is self- taught and has independently developed a highly personal style of drawing using a .01 mm pen. His drawings are unmistakenly Niessen and are moralistic narratives that express both psychological and social issues that not only have affected his life in Holland but transcend universally and globally and affect us all. In his own words he says of his life, “..."I am not educated as an artist...I have been a journalist for about twenty five years, but, unfortunately, when I was about 45 years old I suffered from deep depressions, that took about ten years of my life. In my drawings I try to explain what is/was deep inside me, a way of communication, which in the drawings is said that, which is not possible in my daily life. After this dark period I started studying Arabic, and began to draw more intensely than before. By the end of the sixties I had exhibitions in well-known galleries in Amsterdam and elsewhere. And now I am 72 years old.” Huub's dark, haunting and intense work can currently be found in a number of museum collections, including The Guislain Museum, Ghent, Belgium, the Musee de la Creation Franche, Begles and Sammlung Demirel, Wuppertal, Germany. He has also had one-man exhibitions in Amsterdam, Einhoven, and London
