Please consider the following when contacting me:
Ton Pret is a painter artist with a very personal style, characterized by a very bold use of color, incredibly imaginative figures and an explosion of enthusiasm, spontaneity, passion and positivity. Influential people in the Dutch and international world of art, recognize a link with the COBRA style of last century, but 60 years later. Whatever you call it, it is clearly the “Ton Pret Style”. The style of Ton Pret is best described as “colorful realism of a different reality, with a strong positive effect”. With his work Ton wants to bring out the positive in man, by taking them to another reality, where positivity is the most important factor.
Although as a child Ton drew a lot, molded and did other forms of creativity, it took many years before he decided to become a painter artist.
From one day to another, he knocked over the helm and has followed his heart. He also has no single artistic training, but is a pure autodidact who totally isn’t guided by rules or tendencies, but only follows his spontaneity and inexhaustible fantasy. The paintings of Ton are his transformation into another reality. With his paintings he gives the viewer the opportunity to share this other reality. The viewer is token to another dimension and experience, which gives a certain feeling of happiness.
