Some of Bralds’ most beloved works are his fanciful renditions of cats with their humorous, human-like traits. There’s mystery behind a cat’s eyes in the divinely inspired art of Braldt Bralds. Masterfully creating art that is “of this world, but not in this world,” is his unique artistic talent in paintings that range from realistic, humorous portrayals of cats, to contemplative and detailed still lifes.
Born in the Netherlands into an art-loving culture, Braldt Bralds was very influenced by the works of Dutch Masters such as Rembrandt and Vermeer. He first learned about illustration art from magazine advertisements while still a young child, and from that moment, his course was set. At twelve, he began attending the Grafische School in Rotterdam, where he was instructed in graphic arts and the printing trade. Aside from this formal training, Braldt is primarily self-taught.
