Mirjam Vreeswijk (1997) born in Gorinchem, graduated in 2018 in Fine Art from the HKU (Hogeschool voor de Kunst Utrecht)

Mirjam Vreeswijk is a painter of seductive arrangements. Her fluid brushstrokes disguise that these settings consist of disparate elements that are put together in rough collages of cutouts from glossy magazines and her own photography.These have an intuitive and automatic quality, giving the resulting paintings a haunting surreal feel that occasionally touches elements of product-photography, still-life and landscape painting.
