Bastiaan Mol(1954) is a Dutch artist/illustrator based in Rotterdam,Netherlands.He paints already all of his life.
His art-education ( illustration-design) he got at the Academy for Applied Arts, in Antwerp,Belgium (1986-1991).
Materials he works with are watercolours ,gouache, pen+ink, pastels, graphite and acryllics.
Sofar he doesn`t like producing digital art and prefers the organic feel of real paint ,fresh crisp cottonpaper , or canvas.
Subjects in his art are - for the largest part- the male figure (nude,semi-nude ,in various styles and materials. Sensual but not pornographic).
Animals (especially birds) , music-inspired portraits , fan-art ,etc

From 2013-2021 Bastiaan Mol painted 59 portraits of Portuguese fadosingers,so called "fadistas".Great friendships with the fadoscene grew through the years and a large part of the fado-portraits are on the walls in Lisbon already,while three are part of the main exhibition of the heritage museum of fadomaster Alfredo Marceneiro.
Bastiaan Mol was made a member of honor of this Associação Alfredo Marceneiro and received a document to thank him for his contribution to both the museum and the fadoscene in Portugal. see link: https://www.instagram.com/bastiaanmol_fado/
