About the artist

Jurgen is born on the 5th of October 1963 in the Hague. He's the son of Aris van Braam (emeritus professor university Leiden) and Guurtje Sint.

He started painting and drawing in his childhood at the age of 8 or 9 years. He moved in 1973 from Rotterdam to Zaandam, "Zaanse Schans". One of his well-kept first drawings in 1973 was of his father laying down on their yacht.

Jurgen went to sea in 1980 at the age of 16 as an AB on the mv Polydorus. Late 1981 he went to navigation collage in Amsterdam and achieved his chief mates ticket deep sea.

He stayed at sea and most of his paintings were made in his leave periods. The sketches and pictures made during one of his sea trips and holidays are the source to his paintings.

His artistic motivator is Karel Appel. His wife, Inez Zijdevelt, is his drive to translate his feelings, thoughts and impressions on canvas into paintings.

The site “Artistic Impression”, made by his oldest son Lars van Braam is just a small collection. Of many of the paintings and drawings made in the past are never been taken a picture, or has gone lost during turbulent periods when he was on his own. A resendable amount of his works has been sold or given away. Some has been made in order of the buyer. The total of his works is approximately 450.
