The work of Dutch painter Hans de Bruijn is characterized by its expressionist method. He uses a special control of the paint, and still knows to make a clear composition which besides the sometimes very thick paint also imposed his particular use of color is expressed.
De Bruijn is known for his huge paintings of 2 to 3 meters. But even in a small format, he is a true master. Some of the paintings, therefore, have the size of not more than an A4.
De Bruijn bases most of his work in the tradition of painting. He recreates the romantic tradition by enlarging details and to paint it in its own expressive handwriting.
Hans de Bruijn studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. He graduated with honors in 1986. From 1986 to 1988 he attended a work period at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
