Ton van Geelen paints what he loves, what fascinates him. He is attracted by original countries, colourful people, feelings arising from music and sensuality, untouched cultures and virginal landscapes. As an artist he usually does not choose for the easiest way. For him painting means a long fermentation process of personal experiences, feelings and impressions of travels, which in time will transform into images. More often the paintings refer to concrete images and subjects.
