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.

I Forgot To Say Stop and Checkmate

It is with great pleasure that I present you two new works of art! Contrary to painting in series, I also like to make artworks that are the result from a single idea or experiment. I continue my research into the experience of the ‘in-between’, with Checkmate and I Forgot To Say Stop On Our Way Home.
