Joost Verhagen Artist Bio:
Joost Verhagen (1975) is a fifth yr. student Classical Painting Techniques at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts. He gained experience as a portrait painter and is working as a freelance muralist and designer at his own studio (Atelier Joost Verhagen) for a number of established investors and property managers such as CBRE, Los Angeles. His techniques vary from street art to abstract work and realism in oil and acrylic. His preferred work of fine art is creating portraits and skylines on linen. As an artist, who prefers to walk the road of sidetracks and prefers to go for challenges, I believe in simple but powerful work. So don't make it more complex than it needs to be. The composition must be able to speak for itself and the used material 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”. Besides dedicating every spare moment of the day to his studies and painting skills. Joost is also managing a series of group exhibitions for upcoming artists in the Netherlands in his gallery, together with colleague artist Ary van Baalen. Joost is successful in developing his international career as well and has sold his abstract landscape paintings in for example New York, Washington DC, Kolkata and Sydney.
