the artist Paul Christiaan Bos

Exhibitions

It was late 1971, on a bright and sunny morning. It must have been the month of September or October, because there was that kind of translucent light everywhere. I was cycling early in the morning through the Soesterduinen, as always seeking the largest detour possible on my way to school. It was just before I would bump over the level crossing at the beginning of Amersfoort that I suddenly knew. It struck me like a flash of lightning. I would be an artist, of course! Nothing made more sense. After all, hadn't I been drawing and painting obsessively from the age of twelve?
Thus it was that I began.

Since the spring of 2011, Paul Christiaan Bos has fully devoted himself to his "Uilen Project", also known as "The Owlery Project": an "intense search for the echoes of primeval man in ourselves", as the artist says. In 2012 he met with a serious car accident that made it impossible to continue the old, very intensive way of working. The Owls turned to be not only a source of inspiration, but also of salvation. In addition, he started writing about them.
