Hans de Bruijn

Esso I, 
(design architect Dudok)

Hans de Bruijn received his education at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in The Hague, where he graduated in 1986, and at the National Academy Amsterdam, graduating in 1988. While exploring an individual style of painting, he simultaneously draws from established painterly traditions. His work refers to styles like impressionism, expressionism and sometimes even touches upon Abstract Expressionism. Despite these references, De Bruijn’s work never becomes imitation. He clearly knows how to combine tradition with innovation and his works can be seen as a bridge between traditional and contemporary art.
