Wil Lof beeldend kunstenaar

Introduction

The international career of Wilhelmina Lof started off a long time ago, while working in the textile printing industries, like Texoprint and Parisign. Lots of her designs found their way far across the Dutch borders into Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the  South Americas, either taking shape as printed fabrics for ladies fashion, or printed on special paper for local hottransferring into fabrics in the country of destination.

During her active years in computergraphics design for teletext services, her designs were seen bij millions of TV-viewers not only in the Netherlands, but in Belgium and Sweden too, as well as widespread over Europe, thanks to the designs she made for the Discovery Channel.

Under the aegis of the Municipal Government of Chania (Crete, Greece) an International Workshop for Artists was organized in Octobre/Novembre 2002 by the Omma Centre of Contemporary Art. Omma’s management, Despina and Thomas Tunberg, invited Wil Lof to take part in this workshop, which was attended by a choice of artists from India and the USA as well as a selected group of local painters from the provence of Chania.
