André Schoots was born in Nijmegen, The Netherlands in 1951.
Schoots is an international painter working predominantly in oil on canvas.

He has successfully paralleled art with science and with strategic communication. As Ph.D. researching biological developments and as spokesperson of the city of Nijmegen.
His artwork is exhibited, published and awarded in Europe and the US.

Central theme in Schoots paintings is the development of the human condition. In a fresh, colorful palette he combines a realistic metaphoric language with geometrical patterns.
He investigates the dynamics of sociological issues and natural processes. The works are simultaneously lyrical and mysterious.
 
The artist states:
“I make colorful enigmatic food for thought. For me creativity is a give and take between expression and interpretation. I use the power of visual form inviting the viewer to perceive and imagine”.

André Schoots currently lives and works in Berg en Dal, The Netherlands
