Rudy de Gruyl

Amsterdam, 1962

Rudy de Gruyl has a philosophical take on life and often provides his paintings with somewhat absurd but well-considered titles. De Gruyl paints and draws because he likes it but also 'to get a little bit rich'. He would like to earn money with his art to buy new materials and to 'roam' in the city. The outside doors of the Outsider Art Gallery are decorated with a reproduction of one of his paintings.
