Jan Montyn is a self-taught artist (painter, draftsman, graphic artist, watercolorist). Born in Oudewater, he lives and works alternately in Amsterdam, the South of France and Bangkok. Although Montyn is best known as a graphic artist, he also drew and painted a lot. As a painter and watercolorist, Montyn created images traditional, figurative style. In 1959 he decided to devote himself entirely to the graphic art because this was the medium most suited to him used to be. Jan Montyn translates human emotion into the line of the landscape. He works out this theme alternately figuratively and abstractly in drawings, etchings and poems. Montyn has made many trips to Asia, Indonesia and the Philippines. These trips are also his greatest inspiration.
