Literature: Louis Ferron e.a., 'Armando, schilder-schrijver', Weesp 1985, afb. pag. 115; Antoon Melissen e.a., 'Armando. Tussen het weten en begrijpen', Rotterdam 2015, afb. pag. 154.

Armando: sculptor, violinist, theater and filmmaker, painter, writer, poet. Existential themes are addressed in his work: good and evil, transience, melancholy, war, suffering. The tragedy of man, in all its facets, is depicted by Armando. His experiences in the Second World War are the source for his work. As a child living near Kamp Amersfoort, he was immediately confronted with the horrors of the war. As a result, destruction and distortion as a visual principle play an essential role in his work. The paintings and sculptures are overwhelming because of their monumentality and dramatic appearance. Austerity in material, color and shape, and a rough, pasty texture give his artworks the visual power of an archetype.
