Floris Eugene Betrouw is a contemporary realist painter who lives and works in Paramaribo, Suriname (North coast of South America). His colorful paintings are processed with his self-designed painting technique, namely painting with paper mache, with a 3D visible radiation effect. Basic medium (Mixed medium artwork): Hardboard, Paper-mache, and acryl paint.
My paintings are vivid and realistic the view of the painting-work follows/looks you in the direct line, and vice versa you see a difference in the painting-work. From 2021 to now participated in online Artwork completions whereby received 14 awards
My source of inspiration is the static representation of what I can actually express with shapes and depths, as landscapes, tropical animals and plants, nature, etc. all come alive with contrasting and harmonious colors and bold compositions.
My Paper-Mache artworks are self-designed and researched for high quality and longevity, with the guarantee that this artwork keeps its quality, if it gets wet/moisturized.
My name is Floris Eugene Betrouw from Flo-Collection Visual Art, a contemporary artist specializing in mainly self-designed 3D mix-medium art techniques in, Suriname.
My art talent was known to my younger brother and was then discovered in 2011/2012 during the National competitions, and the director of the Art Academy personally guided me for years.
My colorful paintings are created with this art technique, namely painting with paper-mâché with shape and depth, resulting in a 3D visible radiant effect, which I am proud of because I am the first to use these new insights. This technique is processed in such a way that the painter can accurately represent everything from reality compared to a 2D artwork.
I usually use the following mediums for obtaining the artwork process; gluing canvas fabric on the basis of hardboard, drawing the subject, and then applying waste paper that has been processed into a mud mass with water on that figure/subject, let it dry and paint with your art insight. My source of inspiration for painting art with my technique is the static representation of what you can actually / realistically express and make it alive with the right shapes and depths.
The 3D effects of my paintings are vivid, and in reality, the main object in such a painting follows you in the immediate location, and vice versa you see a difference in the artwork depending on your location.
With this art technique, I think I will raise awareness in the international art world. As of today, I have participated from June 2021 to the present in international art online competitions, and currently own 14 successful awards, although 3D mix medium art technique.
Beautiful Flora and Fauna all come to life with contrasting and harmonious colors and daring compositions, because I love the Flora and Fauna.
