Harold Aspers (Weert, 1968) is a Dutch artist. He grew up in the south of the Netherlands and studied architecture at the TU delft. After a successful career of over 15 years as an architect he made the choice to follow his true passion and since then he works full time as an artist.
The artist is always on the move in search of the natural beauty that goes beyond the flimsy façade. Aspers constantly explores the boundaries of the medium and with mostly self-developed techniques the larger than life portraits are built up layer by layer. From the distance his works show a sharp image, but when approached they provide a high degree of tactility and control of the matter.
He starts his works very methodical on the basis of a preconceived plan for the composition and the image, but while working, forms and details blur, blend and disappear completely: the painting finds his own way. By stacking translucent layers the portraits are emotionally charged, which gives each work a unique character. These layers consist of colors, texts, images, point patterns, patterns, etc. He likes to apply his own visual language to express current social topics. The feeling his work gives you is more important than understanding what you see.
