The Gnome Village, Rotterdam

Art code: 792 395 Copy the art code

Frans Blok Profile picture All over Rotterdam, nicknamed Manhattan upon Maas, skyscrapers are popping up. All over Rotterdam? No, a small village bravely resists the large-scale behemoths. This former Heliport site was built in the late seventies to a design by architect Jan Verhoeven and is popularly known as Little Volendam or the Gnome Village.

This image is based on a photograph, which was transformed into an impressionistic digital painting using textures, filters and other effects.

My work can be located in the border regions of photography, painting and computer visuals. With my company 3Develop I do work in commission but I use the same techniques, skills and software to make free work. I am originally an architect and I live in Rotterdam; for that reason the architecture of that city is a major (but not the only) source of inspiration. But also travel to countries like Iceland and Britain, or walks in the Netherlands, provide much material. Seeing and showing quality and beauty, that is what my work is about.
