Visual Artist

Daan Roukens is a Dutch visual artist, who is best known for his diverse and colourful abstract self-portraits.

From translating his controlled chaos and reflecting on everyday dilemmas, he searches for an in-between experience and feels the strong need to take the viewer into his process. By means of patterns, colour and abstraction, he paints the doubt and aims to make that inner conflict visible and perceptible. His artworks are a mirror, in which the viewer can determine how one sees oneself.

He successfully graduated and obtained his Master of Fine Art degree at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. In addition to painting, he also uses video, ceramics and textiles.

Variations on a Theme
December 8th, 2021 | Artworks

Although I’m still in recovery, I’m proud to present a new video artwork, titled Variations on a Theme, where sound and video alternate in a loop. I’ve been working on this project since last year and finally found a solution to finish this. I’ve created a preview, which you can watch on Youtube or here.

Recovery
November 4th, 2021 | Other

Dear friends, acquaintances and art lovers, after six months of tension, I am very happy to report that I had surgery last week and have been home since Sunday. Due to a large nerve tumor in my back I was unable to work/paint for the past six months and my world was turned upside down. Fortunately, most of it has now been removed and the first step towards recovery has been taken.
