The Netherlands, 1947
Kees Salentijn, born in Amsterdam, is a painter who works from the tradition of painting. He always says he needs a motive from the things around him that trigger his fantasy. After that it can go either way.
He likes a certain ‘soaking’ in his paintings and drawings, which often use a combination of different materials and techniques. In his distinctive colorful style, he shows us his Spanish culture-inspired subjects, including the landscape, folklore, dance, food habits, architecture of the villages and beaches of the Costas.
