Art Objects

Born in Stockholm, 1968
He is of both Swedish and Dutch descent.
He works as an artist mostly in mixed media, with inspiration
from his travels to Central America, Asia and Europe.
Van Bolderick’s signature style typically uses techniques such as oil painting,
acrylic and mixed media with newspaper clippings.
Sheet music, old photos and flyers, creating contrasts between ancient and modern symbols.
Robert will often create an image in which the meanings of the adjacent symbols change,
using hieroglyphs and cave paintings along with the modern symbols of our mass media society,
old family pictures, notes, recent events, or historical extracts in text and images.
This creates a picture where these symbols lose their inherent symbolic value and become part of a new image.
Van Bolderick’s works are available at many private collectors in Sweden, the U.S.,
Europe, as well as in organizations such as Sweden’s parliament, the European Economic and Social Committee, the Swedish Embassy, and much more.
