Rienk van Houten

Rienk is a Dutch artist who lives in the north of The Netherlands. He has been drawing ever since he could hold a pencil. Shapes and colours are the basics for the final painting. During the creation of the artwork, Rienk is looking for tension in the colours to make the painting more attractive. The audience can look at the painting in different ways to see and feel the conflicts on canvas.

The shapes, which are mostly abstract, add a dynamic twist to his artworks what invite us to have a closer look at the details so the artwork can be better understood.
The surreal aspect of his artworks and his influences create a lot of space for everybody’s own interpretation.
