Already from a very young age he painted almost daily and
upto 1986 he did so autodidact, selftaught.

Returning subjects of his art are
animals( often birds) / music-inspired portraits / Hollywood`s golden Age.

THE PORTUGUESE FADO-PORTRAITS
Music is a big inspiration and creates certain atmospheres, we all know that.
Being a huge fan of the Portuguese FADOmusic , Bastiaan Mol visited Portugal
and it`s fadohouses many times and made lots of friends with the fadosingers.
He has read many books about the origines of the FADO and meanwhile owns
a big collection of fadomusic (nearly 400 CD-albums in fado music already.
Plus another part on vinylrecords.
From 2013 - 2019 he painted no less than 53 postraits of these fadosingers .
Many alreay hanging at the walls with the fadosingers , but two of these portraits
are part of the main exhibition at the Associação Alfredo Marceneiro.
This is the heritage museum and society of the fadomaster Alfredo Marceneiro,
which is situated in the outskirts of Lisbon. The museum is run by his grandson,
Vitor Duarte Marceneiro ,who also wrote some biographic books about fadomusic.
This fadosociety made Bastiaan Mol a member of honor and he was presented
a document as a thank you for his contribution to the museum as well as the
world of the Portuguese fado in general...
it would be too much to show all of the 53 portraits of fadistas ,
still I like showing a few of my Portuguese friends
together with their own portrait painting...
read an interview with Bastiaan Mol , in the German BONER-Magazine , from March 2020.
The printed version has 4 pages of interview and photos,here is the online version.(german language)
Read an article with Bastiaan Mol on the GAY-Rotterdam website.(dutch language)
DIVERSE SUBJECTS : ANIMALS , VARIOUS PORTRAITS
During the last years interrest in the male paintings by Bastiaan Mol got bigger and many of his male figure paintings and portraits have already gone over the world to various private collections.
Los Angeles,Philadelphia,NewMexico,Palmsprings but also Estland,Antwerp,Brussels,Porto,Sofia,Bangkok,Berlin.
And to many other destinations the male figure paintings found their way to foreign walls...
As the interrest grew, the male in his paintings as a subject also went to a larger quantity.
Today about 65 % of the subjects in the paintings of Bastiaan Mol is the male figure, in various styles.
I TAKE COMMISSONS !
When you would like a painted portrait of yourself ,
it can be done by posing in person ofcourse(
when you would want to come to Rotterdam,where I live.
But I can also work from photos and make something different from them
using my own specific style and materials.
However the used photos should be of large format ,sharp and clear.
this often means no cellphone photos....
contact me via this website, or via social media.
You can see the buttons here, click them to find me on Facebook,
Instagram ,Vimeo and Tumbler.
Not all of the paintings are still available to buy, so send a note or chat.
And to many other destinations
THE MALE FIGURE PAINTINGS
Regularly I am looking for models.
Often I just ask people on the street, which I find usually the best models.
Want to try it sometime? Send me a message or chat.
Posing is nothing dirty! And it`s also nothing 'gay ' .
There is never sex involved and it doesn`t take very long .
And , people that pose for me ,will get their own painted portrait as a thank you. Get in touch .
Ik zoek regelmatig mannelijke modellen (leeftijd +18 - 40)
Meestal spreek ik mensen op straat aan , daar komen mijn beste modellen
vandaan. oók eens proberen ? Gewoon een berichtje sturen .
Poseren hoeft niet altijd helemaal naakt en er is nóóit sprake
van iets sexueels. Het is ook zeker niet "gay"of voor homo`s.
Modellen krijgen als dank een eigen portret naar hun poseersessie.
ALL IMAGES ARE COPYRIGHTED !
when someone poses , I can make various different styles of paintings out of the same session.
I can paint beards where there is no beard,I can paint blue eyes where there are brown eyes and so on...
My models get no money.
Instead they get themselves a special portrait painted after their
own posing session.
Here are two portraits from the same guy,
From the same session.
