Fred van Deelen

Scraperboard Artist



Also known as a commercial illustrator, Fred has now decided to show some of his latest personal work executed in scraperboard or scratchboard.

The procedure is labour intensive as it involves scraping away the black ink on his black scraperboard revealing the white underlay.

For this he uses sewing needles and other fine implements.

All images have many thousands of lines giving each images beautiful tones and incredible detail.

Each piece will take a minimum of 30 hours on the smallest pieces to several hundred hours for the bigger ones stretching to 100cm.
