(1982, Hoogeveen, Netherlands)
The dutch painter Roel van der Linden is a playful contemporary painter. A true post-modernist as he mixes numeral techniques and stules.
He launches through his paintings that are both meaningless and meaningful cries for and into society.
Roel paints (self)-portraits, flags, and abstract paintings.
Currently, he is living in Prague and supports the cultural exchange between the Czech Republic and the Netherlands.
