BIO

Stefan (1989) moved to Buenos Aires at an early age, where he was inspired by the blend of European chic and Latin sensualness. After studying photography in Argentina he returned to the Netherlands to study International Relations. Despite a promising career in diplomacy, he could not resist his urge to get back in the art world. 

He now dedicates himself to explore human emotions on canvas.

WORK

Stefan's limited edition prints are inspired by Renaissance's greatest painters, who were able to tell a story on a - single - canvas. His work is subject to the Human Condition including timeless archetypical truths such as fear, violence, desire and compassion. His collection is celebrated for its cinematic aesthetic.

A selection of his commercial work can be found here.

I am heavily influenced by Carl Jung and te idea of the collective unconciousness.

By using photography as a medium to paint with archetypes: universal truths about the human condition, I try and explore the unconscious.

These truths, in turn, helps us to explain why we act the way we act. That is true art for me.
