The artist
Jos van Beek has been a visual artist since 1973.

Since 1986, when the artist moved to Sint Anthonis, painting has become the focal point of his work, which thereby gained in depth considerably.
His work is striking through its bright, daring use of colour, in combination with a noticeable radiation of optimism and joy of living.

The themes in his work are strongly connected to common, everyday life, traces of which can nearly always be found in his work, to a more largely or less recognizable extent, whether it be stylized or not. Moreover, purely abstract work is part of his oeuvre as well
