"Playful", "colourful", "absurd". Amsterdam artist René Windig’s work can be described by these terms, but words alone do not do justice to the surprise one feels when seeing the Windig birds for the first time. The whimsical Windig birds, made from resin and featuring striking primary colours, are a tribute to the artist’s childhood memories, and his playful and colourful bird drawings. In Windig’s childhood home a painting by Karel Appel had pride of place over the settee. (His father, well known photographer Ad Windig had been given it in exchange for photographing a number of paintings). Windig has mixed abstract expressionism with the emphasis on balanced composition and the clear line and narrative from comics. This results in the unique, immediately recognisable style of this painter draughtsman and comic book illustrator.
