About Roeland

Born in 1978 in the Netherlands, Roeland graduated at the Royal Art academy in Hertogenbosch in 2004. Roeland has had several exhibitions in the Netherlands, but also in Belgium, France, Poland and the USA.

Fascinated by the life of 19th and early 20th century elite and the dedication to their appearance Roeland was inspired to create work which breathes the atmosphere of this period. Using friends, colleagues and sometimes complete strangers to model in his work he manages to create a link between these different era’s.

It’s typical for Roeland’s works to be painted with a loose streak and an eye for detail. He likes to paint people the way they would like to see themselves, with the right clothes and attitude. His use of color is also striking and he likes to emphasize the true character of the person.
