Description
J. van Diemen - American Football
Color screen print - Signed - 83/150 - 1992

Amsterdam, 1954

With artist Jan van Diemen, sport is a main topic. The athletes in his paintings are surrounded by a background that, through bright colours and lyrical forms, reflect the heat of the battle.

During his studies sport became his favourite subject. Because of his predilection for character-like elements, he greatly increases the intensity of the act or the sports event. While his work places itself stylistically under the expressionism of, among others, Kees van Bohemen, Pieter Defesche and Karel Appel, and is also influenced by, for example, Willem de Kooning, Jan van Diemen knew very well how to express himself in his outspoken visual language and played a totally independent role within the contemporary visual arts during the past three decades.
