Niek van der Plas paints impressionist scenes of Holland's beaches and dunes, bulb fields, city scenes in Amsterdam and Maastricht, and other typically Dutch vistas such as the harbours of Old Dutch towns. Figures are often central in the work of this painter, who was born in 1954 and who is notable for his use of light colors.
In 1966 - when Niek was twelve years old, the Katwijk painter was nominated for a place at a Famous Artists School in the USA. But Niek van der Plas was not destined to receive professional training as an artist. As a self-taught artist he intended to perfect his own technique and was influenced strongly by his own responses to his surroundings. He can therefore be described as an autodidactic painter.
The influence of The Hague School has always been evident in the work of Niek van der Plas, so too the environment where he grew up of the sea, the beach and the dunes.
