Maarten Welbergen, Traveling Artist of the Night

7 am on a frosty autumn morning
Fog is still hanging low
I’m not the only one waiting for the bus!

Nights and early mornings are the most poetic moments of the day.
Especially when the fog is hanging low and everything gets blurred.
When streetlamp-lights become iridiscent light-balls floating in the sky.
Everything is silent and everybody is still asleep.
These are the moments when I wander around to find my motives to draw and paint.

In this exhibition I’ll show my most recent drawings and paintings of the night.
I call them ‘Nocturnes’.
Together with these works I’ll also show my recent travel-drawings and watercolours.
