About the artist:
Ron van der Ende is a sculptor living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He specializes in wall mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood. The original color and texture of the wood is utilized to form a gripping and realistic mosaic. The realism is further enhanced by the perspective built into the relief. Van der Ende uses his method to conjure up dark industrial and space age imagery.

The artist about his web activities:
“I think visual artists should consider taking charge of their own (web)representation as a natural part of their field. And why not? Its cheap, quite (but not too) easy and just plain fun!”
