Artist Wouter Stips
Wouter Stips works with the same spirit and energy of the COBRA-artists like Corneille, Karel Appel, Lucebert, Constant, Eugene Brands, Pederson a.o. His works are being collected by Cobra-collectors worldwide. His colourful bright and childlike style is very much his own.
He seizes every opportunity to manifest his ideas in a material that appeals to him, that arouses his creativity. A thought suddenly arises, 'Aha, I can make an image out of that' and then he begins, like a man possessed, to make a series of images, figures or books. And then he continues making pictures lithographs, prints, silk-screen prints, and music. This is something intrinsic to Stips to COBRA, and actually to the open-mindedness of a child as well. It its simple lack of inhibition.
