Aat Veldhoen (Amsterdam, November 1, 1934) is a Dutch painter. Veldhoen grew up in Amsterdam and learned the tricks of the trade as an artist from his father, who was first an advertising painter and later a painter. Veldhoen started his career as a draftsman but soon established his name as a free artist. His love for drawing is clearly reflected in his work: detailed drawings and paintings of dune landscapes, self-portraits, but especially naked women and making love are part of his oeuvre. He learned a lot as an intern at the Binnengasthuis, where he drew patients and operations. He bought his first etching press from the royal grant for free painting that he received three years in a row. With this he wanted to fulfill his ideology to make art for the people, folk graphics had to become the works made. He started drawing directly on offset plates, to then print the "rotaprints". On a cargo bike with his prints in it, he drove through Amsterdam between 1964 and 1967 where he sold the graphics. The cargo bike was inaugurated by Simon Carmiggelt. On the occasion of Veldhoen's seventieth birthday (2004), the Rembrandt House Museum exhibited a large collection of his work as a free artist and draftsman. These works were exhibited for the first time in a gallery in Animaux gallery Rotterdam from 26 March 2006. For this occasion, a silkscreen was made of the work 'In Love', a self-portrait of Veldhoen with his old love Cristi Kluivers, which he gave to his new love and wife Hedy d'Ancona. The artist David Veldhoen is his son. This is a (famous) rotaprint, directly from the artist at the time.
