Ron van der Ende is a sculptor living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. He specializes in wall mounted bas-reliefs constructed from found wood. The original color and texture of the wood is utilized to form a gripping and realistic mosaic. The realism is further enhanced by the perspective built into the relief. Van der Ende uses his method to conjure up dark industrial and space age imagery.

Works by Ron van der Ende have been exhibited a.o. at Ambach & Rice Gallery, Dallas, Museum; Voorlinden, Wassenaar; de Kunsthal, Rotterdam; Kuenstlerhaus, Dortmund; Groninger Museum, Groningen; Stadthausgalerie, Munster; Dallas Art Fair; The Armory Show in New York; OkOk Gallery in Seattle, and Ampelhaus in Oranienbaum.
