In 1973, Johannes Boekhoudt immigrated with his parents from Curaçao to Costa Rica and worked as a commercial and air ambulance pilot until he moved to Texas. A self-taught artist, he pulls inspiration from Europe, Africa, and Latin America into his work with a style reminiscent of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Willem de Kooning, and Pablo Picasso.

Boekhoudt is renowned for his unique crosses and works in various formats, including large oil on linen and canvas, and reclaimed materials such as wood and old clocks to construct elemental sculptures. As a journalistic artist, the core themes of Boekhoudt’s works have revolved around the effects of political instability on human rights, social justice, and children’s and women’s rights since the beginning of his career.

Based in Rockwall, Boekhoudt continuously donates his works to charity auctions and other social nonprofit entities to fulfill his humanitarian vision. His work is included in several public and private collections, both nationally and internationally.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 6.
