“Travel fuels the imagination” is a variant on an old saying which certainly applies to Michiel Schrijver (1957). Painting is a form of travel for him, after all. And the way it amazes him is a great motivation to paint. Amazement at everything he discovers en route in his inner world, becaust that is what appears in his paintings.
The paintings of Michiel Schrijver give us the opportunity to travel through his world. We are taken into his inner world where people play a minor role in an often overwhelming architecture. Michiel Schrijver is a well known Dutch artist, who lives and works in Baarn, the Netherlands.
