Who is Joost Delsink?
I was born in 1973 in Nijmegen. Since 1998 I have lived and worked in Utrecht.
My style of painting can be compared to making a journey, where I am spontaneous and intuitive. My emotions are my guide, letting myself be surprised about what emerges on the canvas.
The results vary from loose to more constructive.
I love color combinations, lines, empty spaces and simple materials. I am happy to express feelings using color and paint.
Sometimes I remove the background of the painting, and leave behind a number of strokes on the canvas. I find my inspiration mainly from experiences on a spiritual plane, also from people, their feelings and relationships.
I look for beauty, harmony and balance, which I find in nature, which is also a source of inspiration for me.
I am not interested in painting pretty pictures. I want to paint something that goes beyond that which transcends. I want to leave the interpretation of my paintings open, so I prefer not title my paintings in case it may limit the viewer.
During 2005 - 2009 I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Arendonk, Belgium.
