Joost Verhagen (1975) is an artist painter, specialized at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts - specialization Industrial Landscapes.
He gained experience as a landscape painter and is working at his own studio, Atelier Joost Verhagen. His preferred work of fine art is creating landscapes on linen and his techniques vary from street art to abstract work and realism in oil and acrylic.
''As an artist, you aim to create and innovate. But I also believe in simple but powerful work. Don't go for complexity without reason. The composition must be able to speak for itself and the used material and techniques 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”.
