Life Dates:
b. 1937
Artist Biography:
Bob Bonies can be considered to be a successor of the “de Stijl” movement, meaning "less is more", for he doesn't restrict himself to free art alone but extends his artistic work to architecture, industrial design, and art teaching, and exemplifies the aim of those pioneers who wanted to use their artistic ideas for shaping their surroundings. Moreover, he can also be considered a pioneer of the second generation, as his constructivist painting imparted a new impetus to the geometric direction of art in the Netherlands of the 1960s.
