Marc Mulders

(1958, Tilburg, Netherlands)


Besides being a modern impressionist painter, Marc Mulders is also an aquarellist, photographer and stained glass artist.

The studio of Marc Mulders is based in a stable in the middle of a field full of wildflowers. Whilst painting in the doorway the bees buzz and the butterflies are fluttering around his donkey. Mulders calls his garden “my own private Giverny”, a reference to the famous gardens of Claude Monet, a great example for him.
In his pasty almost abstract oil painting, he follows the course of nature around him: “In the Spring and Summer I sniff the scents, and in the Autumn I paint my head with the echo of that floral splendor. I am driven by the desire for the new flowers that will arise in my field.” says Mulders.
