Joost Verhagen

Biography

 

Joost Verhagen (1975) is an artist painter, specialized at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts – specialisation Industrial Landscapes.

He gained experience as a landscape and portrait painter and is working on a daily basis at his own studio – Atelier Joost Verhagen.

His preferred work of fine art is creating portraits and landscapes on canvas and his techniques vary from urban art to abstract work and semi-realism in oil and acrylic.

”As an artist, you aim to create and innovate. But I also believe in simple but powerful work. Don’t go for complexity without reason. The composition must be able to speak for itself and the used material and techniques must fit in with the thought process. I am always searching for this fragile balance between abstract and realistic, and to get as close to this tipping point as possible”.

Joost has held several (solo) exhibitions in the Netherlands, Belgium and India.
