Over Kees Salentijn

Kees Salentijn’s work is characterized by diversity. According to himself, one means is not necessarily better than the other in art, as long as it is used correctly. One day Salentijn works figuratively classical or expressively abstract. The other day again childishly naive.

One of the many characteristics of Salentijn’s works is the experimental and diverse use of different materials. Drawings with pen, brush and / or pencil, but he also uses acrylic paint on canvas, collages, gouaches or a combination of these techniques.

Kees Salentijn mainly draws inspiration from Spain. The topics vary from the culture, the crowded Spanish beaches, dancing, walking ladies on beautiful boulevards, landscapes, parties. These themes are alternated rapidly. His works not only characterize great versatility, but also underline his fiery passion for the most diverse styles in art
