Hans Parlevliet was born in 1953 in Groningen and followed in a fine art study at Art Academy Minerva from 1975 to 1980 in the same city. He mainly paints landscapes, almost always with low sunlight and a long horizon, so characteristic of the North of the Netherlands. His paintings have a bright use of colour, and often there is a strict, sometimes even symmetrical, composition. The paintings are detailed and the ground often extends right in front of the viewer’s feet. He invites the viewer for a virtual walk.
Hans will lead a plein air painting session on the third day of the conference. This session is fully sponsored by The Fine Art Collective.
