MaxResistance Contest & Guest Speaker 09/09/14
Verstappen’s introduction to art was at the age of fifteen after his first solo canoe trip into the wilds of Algonquin Provincial Park. There he first learned of Tom Thomson one of Canada’s famous Group of Seven painters. Following Thompson’s example, Verstappen became an adept woodsman and later worked as an out-tripper in the very same park.
At the age of sixteen, he backpacked solo through Europe where he spent many hours wandering the Louvre in Paris, the Vatican Museum in Rome, and the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam.
Verstappen traveled across Canada, the US, and Europe again before entering Ryerson College in 1977 and then York University from 78 to 80. While at York Verstappen drew a weekly comic strip published in the college newspaper The Seer titled Zero that lampooned the college pub scene.
Verstappen opened his first studio, SunDog Studio, in 1981 in historic Kleinberg Ontario nearby the McMichael Gallery; the largest collection of Group of Seven paintings. During his Kleinberg Studio days, Verstappen worked in Stained Glass creating both traditional designs as well as unique city and landscapes. He also created dozens of watercolor paintings of area farm houses.
From 1985-91 Verstappen lived and traveling throughout China and East Asia and is one of the few westerns to have lived and studied Kung Fu in China. During this time he worked in acrylics focusing on oriental themes.
