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.
