Thierry Veltman (born December 16, 1939 in Bussum) is a Dutch painter, sculptor, ceramist and art educator. He focuses in particular on figures and still life.[4]

Life and career[edit]

Veltman won his first art prize at the age of 12, at an international exhibition of children's drawings in Brazil. In 1958, when he was 19, he exhibited his own interpretations of the Suriname rainforest. He went on to study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. From the early 1960s Veltman exhibited extensively at art galleries in the Netherlands and sometimes beyond.[5]

Veltman uses many drawing and painting techniques, often in mixtures. He is also active in sculpting, ceramics and art research. He is still influenced by spending some of his youth in South America.[6]

Since 1966 he lives mostly in Dordrecht,[7] with a short interlude in Amerongen. He taught many students painting and drawing, both in Dordrecht and at Ichthus College in Rotterdam. At Ichthus he founded the department of Art and Communication. Veltman is the author of the art education book "Individuality and drawing" (1978; in Dutch).

Thierry Veltman is married to Eelke.[8]
