Expositie ‘Nostalgische Sporen in Amsterdam’

This month the exhibition ‘Nostalgic Traces in Amsterdam’ can be admired in the Passage!

Artist Jim Gijbels has had a love for trains and trams from an early age!

“I’ve been drawing everything with wheels since my childhood! In the ‘60s my parents didn’t have a car yet, so we had to use public transport. From the age of four I started to get interested in transport and in particular for trains and trams! I have sketchbooks full of drawings! ”

He got his love for painting from his father. Jim attended the free art academy where he learned the basics of painting with gouache, but most of his works are made with oil paint, his favourite material.

Jim still enjoys painting vehicles. A few years ago, the railway museum included a number of his works in their collection.


Travel back in time with Jim. The exhibition can be seen until July 25!
