My name is Hans Burghouts, born in Edam on the 26th of may 1962. As a child I could draw very well. I painted my kindergarden schoolmates and just made some primitive basic scratchy drawings. I already made recognizable pictures in perspective.
I did not take any art-classes, however my father could make nice drawings too. So the apple didn’t fall very far from the tree.
After a very happy time, working in tourism (as a clogmaker), I unfortunately was struck by two cerebral infarctions. For now I am completely out of active duties. I no longer take life as serious as I used to, so now I am starting in a brandnew way of painting. I call it : HiHi Art by Hansy. Making fun of normal situations of sceneries, so they put a smile on the observers faces.
