Johan Ekkel
www.GayArt.nl is the virtual Gallery of Johan Ekkel. Johan Ekkel graduated from the Royal Academy of Art and Design in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, and for 20 years worked as an illustrator for advertising agencies and book and magazine publishers. During this stage of his career, he won awards from the Dutch Art Directors Club and also from the Netherlands Post Office for his stamp designs.

Since taking early retirement in 1997 he has returned to his first love - painting and drawing the male nude. His works often have a feel of Italy about them. He works in oil and paints in intense colors as if working in the Mediterranean sun. He likes to paint the male body in extreme poses, testing his technical ability often placing his subjects are painted with water, especially the shower or the bath. Johan Ekkel lives and works in Amsterdam.
