Renowned artist John Van Der Sterren was born in Java in 1938, on the eve of the approaching World War. Born from Dutch ancestry, his early years as a boy were spent on a tea estate in West Java where his Father served as manager.

After surviving the tumultuous war years, at the age of 13 in 1951, Van Der Sterren’s family immigrated to New Zealand. He pursued artistic training in his new home and met the well-known New Zealand painter, Cedric Savage, who taught him how to use oil paints.

As a young man Van Der Sterren worked in the advertising industry while participating in private exhibitions of his art during in his spare time. After a successful exhibition in Indonesia in 1993, Van Der Sterren  became a full-time artist, quickly earning a reputation as a leading landscape and portrait painter in the Fauvist style.

He has spent the past two decades traveling around Southeast Asia, Europe, New Zealand and Australia recording his travels in art. He has exhibited in Indonesia, Thailand, France, Morocco and Singapore.

His current exhibition to be held at Bridges in Ubud, Bali will provide important financial support to The John Fawcett Foundation’s work in curing blindness by providing cataract operations. The Foundation offers essential medical assistance to economically disadvantaged Indonesias. Patients are treated free of charge with reference to religion, political or ethnic affiliation.
