People are an inexhaustible, unfailing source for Albert Groenheyde. He is a sharp observer and he's painting people realistic also showing their character and athmosphere. He does not hide imperfection, he rather accentuates it. That might be confrontating.
His way of painting is realistic. With firm touches and sometimes subtile accents. He has a very personaly way of using colour nuances.
Lucian Freud, David Levine en Jenny Saville are inspirators for Albert Groenheyde.
