Cees has been painting bright, colourful images all his life, and his work ranges from friendly flowers to abstract, colourful geometry. His paintings are influenced by the Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld and the abstract paintings of Piet Mondriaan. His work can be found in wineries and homes throughout Prince Edward County.
“Colour is everywhere in my paintings and photographs, lush and vibrant and related to my outlook on life: only positive and only happiness. This is expressed in primary colours and simple compositions which reflect the way my life, together with my wife, has developed in an absolutely extraordinary way. We enjoy life!” —Cees van Groll
