Active as an artist , mainly painting, van Vreden has not become the household name in dutch modern art as expected . There is a very long list of exhibitions and through the years i started to admire his works.
His paintings are timeless and in many cases inspired by nature and flowers. They are to be found in sometimes vague, but almost abstract compositions. According to the information on the internet he stopped painting in 2013 and started his own gallery (www.tegenboschvanvreden.com), but this does not mean that his paintings are no longer of interest. As said they are timeless and well worth to look for at auctions and internet sales. http://www.ftn-books.com has the van Vreden book WORKS 1990-1993 for sale.
