This website is made to cherish the legacy of Ger Dekker.
In his remembrance we initiated The Ger Dekker Foundation, to support young upcoming artists.
Ger Dekker was born in Alkmaar, the Netherlands, on October 22, 1943; the Second World War was at its height. He also spent his childhood years in this city; during high school (gymnasium) he met his life partner, Annelie Roozen, his muse. From an early age Ger felt strongly attracted to the visual arts. After high school he went to the Academy of Fine Arts in Tilburg at a young age. He moved to Amsterdam and continued his education at the Rijksakademie.Discover More
His early work was strongly inspired by De Stijl, with big names such as Gerrit Rietveld, Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondriaan.
Over the years he further developed his own, unique style. You can appreciate a glimpse of his artwork on this website.
