Geert Kollau (1978) is a Dutch mixed-media/photo and sculpture artist, who, after having lived over a decade a tumultuous life in Amsterdam, has returned to his roots in the south of the Netherlands to fully focus on his work as an artist.

Geert has always been highly conscious of the world surrounding him, which inspired him to start visualizing his impressions through art. In the course of time he has developed his own recognizable style using a mixture of images of past, present and future to express his socially critical look.
Geert has become a visual storyteller and like the old Dutch masterpainters, he uses a lot of symbolism in his work, but also portrays people in personified artworks. His goal is not to impose his opinion, but to stimulate people’s awareness.

His work has brought Geert recognition throughout the world and resulted in taking part at Overture Art Basel Miami, PAN Amsterdam, Monte-Carlo, Ibiza, Rotterdam Singapore, a unique collaboration and duo exposition with Julian Lennon and many more. In 2014 shows were scheduled in Milan, New York, Hong Kong, Ascona (CH), Bruges (BE), Amsterdam, Singapore etc. 2015 became a big year for him with shows all over the world.
