Hans Rijpma


ABOVE: Tres Arroyos, by Hans Rijpma.

The Dutch artist Hans Rijpma is a native of Amsterdam, where he was born in 1951. He began sketching and drawing as a schoolboy and kept it up through a career as clerk of the court in Amsterdam and Utrecht. After becoming a member of the Artists' Society in Maarssen, a picturesque village on the Vecht River, Hans Rijpma went on to give exhibitions at artists' fairs, at corporations such as Shell and Solvay, in the Dutch Ministry of Justice, and--most recently--in the Grande Arche of La Défense in Paris.

Hans Rijpma normally draws in chalk or crayon on 70 x 100-cm. paper. Many of his drawings feature classic automobiles, and his work was featured in a leading car magazine. Mr. Rijpma lives in Maarssen, the Netherlands and is represented by John Buisman, who can be contacted at:
