Dutch artist Daan Roukens (1987) is best known for his diverse and colourful abstract artworks. Working across painting, wall painting, installations and design, he is driven by a constant interaction of urges and struggles with his obsessive perfectionism. In his work Roukens abstracts our daily life and deals with issues of categorisation by engaging its contradictions. He explores the energetic tension and displays a subtlety of balances in our systems and patterns.
Roukens successfully graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts at AKV St. Joost (Den Bosch, 2009) and is currently obtaining a Master of Arts degree at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam. Varying from private projects to commissions for brands and companies, his work has since been collected worldwide and exhibited at museums, galleries, fairs and stores. He lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
