Dick VanMourik was born in Rotterdam, Holland on June 9th, 1918. Though his interest in art has prevailed throughout his life, he did not start painting with oils until the early 60's. At the age of 96 (in June of 2014) his body of work consists of over 100 oil paintings, approximately 60 of which are 36”x48”. Mr. VanMourik views his work as an expression of love, not ego and until now has been reluctant to show his art to the public. Mr. VanMourik is no longer painting, though he was an active artist well into his 90’s.He has recently moved back to Southern CA and has asked his niece, Victoria Hazlett to assist in generating an interest in his art. Mr. VanMourik and Victoria hope to have his first art show by fall 2014. They are seeking a suitable gallery or venue in the OC/LA area to show his large body of work.In May 2104 he gave his first interview to the Orange County Register regarding not only his art but his experience in World War II. He was stationed at Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941, where he escaped death three times.Mr.VanMourik has visited museums around the globe and attended the San Francisco Art Institute. Many of his works of art are original, however he has interpreted the great Masters with his own style.
