Klaas Kloosterboer's starting point is painting on canvas, but is always looking beyond the painterly parameters of the framed canvas. Next to painting, he incorporates the theatrical, the 3-dimensional and the scenario into his work. The key concepts are visual constructions and a material concreteness as a form of abstraction. He regards combining painting with industrial objects, such as plasterboard or cardboard boxes, as an interesting addition to the pure act of painting.

Klaas Kloosterboer lives and works in Amsterdam after attending the Rijksakademie there. He had solo exhibitions at Badischer Kunstverein, Karlruhe (2003), and at Villa Roma, Florence (2010). As part of the Reykjavik Arts Festival (2009), he had a solo exhibition in Sudsvestur. He participated in 'Dumb painting' at Centraal Museum, Utrecht (1992); 'Bildraum Erweitert' at Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle (1997) and The 'Projection Project, Budapest episode' at Kunsthalle, Budapest (2007). His work can be found in private collections in Norway, Iceland, The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Public collections like the Schunck Museum, Heerlen; Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Centraal Museum, Utrecht and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam own his work. In 2009 Museum Boijmans van Beuningen presented work by Kloosterboer in two rooms during a group show with overview of part of their collection.
