A d van Hassel (Roosendaal, 1953) is a Dutch artist. He began his training as a creative artist in the studio of Maarten Krabbe, where he mastered the use of several techniques. In the early days he mainly focused on etching and watercolors, later he dedicated himself to silkscreen printing. He gained great fame as a craftsman silkscreen printer of the works of a select group of famous Dutch artists. Besides his business success, the creativity of his own work has become a higher priority. Especially his colorful acrylic paintings on canvas, with elements inspired from nature are widely appreciated.
Cityscapes, landscapes and flower still lifes are often the theme of his work. His cityscapes testify to an exceptionally sharp insight in spatial perspective. Particularly in his etchings, a perspective line of lines is depicted with a feeling for detail and almost effortless accuracy. In 1985 an etching of him was included in the Rijksprentenkabinet of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
Between 1981 and 1986 Ad van Hassel had his own art trade. However, despite his business success, his artwork has gained the upper hand and he once again established himself as a free artist a few years ago. He previously worked mainly on reality, now he lets his imagination run free and he concentrates on silkscreening, in which his preference for color play gets all the space.
