Irene Hoff creates uplifting artwork filled with hope and positivity reflecting her desire for a more peaceful and compassionate world. Inner Power, a Pop Art collage mixing paper, canvas, acrylic and zink, is testament to Irene’s imaginative approach to design. Her animal-centric pieces such as the above and Blowing Bubbles are expressly light-hearted and charming.
Toos Van Holstein creates figurative worlds in her expressionistic paintings, amalgams of diverse cultural contexts and colours inspired by her travels. Bodisathva, for example, uses religious iconography with heavenly colours to match.
Another abstract expressionist, Lysette Spit, composes mixed-media paintings. The Dutch artist creates a symphonic visual language with her vibrantly patterned works combining improvised brush strokes, textured formats, light effects and different mediums such as glass pearls, diamonds and gloss. Sapphire is an explosion of colour and arguably reminiscent of masters like Jackson Pollock but with a modern twist.
Painter, muralist and illustrator Eelco Van Den Berg’s style is a cross-pollination of Surrealistic, Pop Art and Street Art. The artist constructs psychedelic landscapes inspired by the streets of New York and his fascination with hip hop and graffiti. Classy, for instance, is colourful, rhythmic and urban. Labelled one of New York City’s Top 10 Street Artists, Eelco is one to watch.
