I would like to take the observer to this specific place and show them the feeling I experienced. Show the observer my view of the world. With a coherence of compositions, color and brush techniques, I try to convey to the observer how I experience this dynamic world. A great example for me in this is Edward Hopper. A master in portraying characters in isolated and abandoned environments. He also focuses on painting shadows and light to allow the observer to experience a certain atmosphere. His view of this world.
I am Michel Tuinman, a 30-year-old visual artist and I live and work in Rotterdam. I followed my education at the Wackers Academy in Amsterdam where the emphasis is on artistic craft development and good control of techniques. Explanation art My interest in painting is diverse. At the moment I am very attracted by nightly cityscapes. The reflections, the many light sources, shadows and perspectives are aspects that awaken my interest. With my paintings, I want to create dynamic cityscapes, in which 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 give people a view of cities from my vision in oil paint.
