I am Michel Tuinman, a 29 year old visual artist and I live and work in Rotterdam. I followed my education at the Wacker Academy in Amsterdam where the emphasis lays on artistic craft development and a good control of techniques.
My interest in art painting is very diverse. At the moment I am attracted by nightly cityscapes. The reflections, the many light sources, shadows and perspectives are aspects that interest me. With my paintings I want to create dynamic cityscapes, where the warm shop windows, street lighting, traffic and car lights blend with the cool hardness of concrete and asphalt. Figuration merges with abstraction. With the help of various painting techniques, I create the city in oil paint in my vision.
