Reinout Velleman (b. 1999, the Netherlands): My work consists of figurative paintings displaying dramatized scenes from contemporary life, often emphasizing feelings of suspense and revelation. Within the spaces I depict, the characters take on their own life and relation to each other. Being static and silent, their actions become symbolic, signifying their role in the play. They inhabit a space that is situated between a dream and reality in which I aim to bring up what might be hidden beneath a normal happening.

Currently based in Groningen, the Netherlands.
