Abstract art now: Germany

Ronald de Bloeme

new abstract art: Ronald de Bloeme

Ronald de Bloeme's large abstract works combine hard-edged planes of colour with loose, painterly swathes in compositions that are as finely-tuned as they're frenetic.

Dutch by nationality, the influence of his homeland's indigenous modernist movement De Stijl is clearly present in de Bloeme's favoured block-like forms and glacial colour schemes.

Nevertheless, de Bloeme's painting is very much about contemporary lifestyles, referencing the ubiquitous visual language of advertising, street signage and corporate graphics.

A hugely accomplished artist, in 2008 de Bloeme was the first ever non-German to win the country's national award for contemporary painting.
