Capturing the Energy of Modern Life

Hi there! I’m Robert Scholten, a contemporary impressionist artist with a passion for translating the vibrant energy of urban landscapes onto paper and canvas. My paintings are an exploration of light, movement, and the unique character of modern cities.

A Blend of Tradition and Modernity

I draw inspiration from the techniques of the Impressionist masters, particularly their focus on capturing fleeting moments and the play of light. However, I integrate this tradition with a modern sensibility, incorporating bold colors, abstraction and dynamic compositions to reflect the energy of contemporary city life.

Beyond the Surface

While my paintings depict the bustling streets and iconic landmarks of cities, I believe they offer more than just a pretty picture. I strive to capture the essence of a place – the rhythm of daily life, the fleeting beauty of light and shadow, the hidden stories that unfold within the urban fabric.

Finding Inspiration in the Everyday

My artistic process begins with exploration. I wander the streets, soaking in the sights, sounds, and atmosphere of the city. A bustling intersection, a quiet alleyway bathed in afternoon light, a group of people hurrying by – these everyday moments become the sparks that ignite my creative fire.

A World of Cities

My artistic journey has taken me to vibrant metropolises around the world, each offering a unique source of inspiration. From the towering skyscrapers of New York to the charming streets of Paris, I find beauty and energy in every urban landscape.
