about the artist


Bart makes wire and steel rod wall murals for public, commercial, and residential locations. He is represented by galleries in the US and has sold to collectors all over the world. The wire pieces are the final step in a simplification process that starts with a photograph. He makes and remakes a digital line drawing to emphasize only the essence of the subject, then, like the poet who reviews every word, he re-examines every turn and curve as he bends the wire into a sculpture.

Bart came to America from Holland. He currently lives in East Texas.

Bart has used his degree in Communications from Boston University plus his skill as an artist to work in advertising, art direction and technical publications. He has also attended creative photography and illustration classes at New York University and The New School in New York City. He has completed work in stained class, water color, and oils. He has illustrated with wire since 1972. His major pieces are wall sculptures using steel wire. His large scale wall sculptures hang in hotels, hospitals, residential and commercial locations throughout the United States and the world.

Bart Soutendijk makes wire wall murals for public, commercial, and residential locations out of wire – usually as a commission. The wire pieces are the final step in a simplification process that starts with a photograph or group of photographs. He makes and remakes a digital line drawing to emphasize only the essence of the subject, then, like the poet who reviews every word, he re-examines every turn and curve as he bends the wire into a sculpture. The final installation, a solid line in space in front of a moving shadow, has scale enough to suit a large wall without dominating the room.  His work has been purchased by collectors from all over the world.
