Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Pieter Kooistra was a Dutch painter , printmaker , photographer , sculptor and writer.  He was self-taught and worked mainly in expressionist and fauvist styles in Leeuwarden, Bergen, Terschelling, Amsterdam and from 1974 in Varik .

His main subjects were landscapes, nudes and non-figurative work. In the Netherlands he became known as the creator of the art library / art library. He found that a work of art is a means to raise awareness of unity in diversity, like life itself, and wanted this ideal closer to ordinary people bring.

Pieter Kooistra was very socially involved. He was founder of the "Uno-income", probably the first organization that advocated a global basic income .

Pieter Kooistra has a large amount of art bequeathed to the Foundation Uno and a large number of paintings can be seen in the Veerhuis in Varik.
