20 Jan Onke Truijen – Portrait Artist
Onke Truijen is a Dutch artist living in Spain. For 8 years she was seduced by Ibiza’s light and bohemian lifestyle but she is now based in Barcelona. She works with oils, acrylics, pastels and spray paints. Onke believes in recycling and giving materials a new life and often paints her portraits on cardboard. Onke also offers workshops for adults and children at her home in the Maresme.
“As an artist – and as a person – I am interested in the connection between image and self. We can change our style and still the inner person shines through. I love that, and that is what I paint: YOU and the light and shadows in your face, the expression and vulnerability of the moment.“
