"THE GAUCHO's" of Dutch born Artist Henk Wechgelaar
Traveling extensively through Latin America and inspired by the paintings of The New York School Artist Alex Katz - Henk has gravitated towards "The Gauchos" of Argentina. With an English Art Background he has drawn us into compositions of South America and the Romantic Icon of "The Gaucho" . A glimpse into their daily worlds with a 'snapshot' triggered by an emotional connection, Henk has captured the vibrant communication between people and their environment through an abundance of color, not just watching, but much rather sharing lives intimately with the viewer.
