Born and raised in rotterdam, Jeroen Allart studied at the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam, Willem de Kooning Academie Rotterdam and the Rijksacademie Amsterdam. He is known for his flat-painted works depicting birds, cowboy portraits and landscapes with a very low horizon.
Allart’s latest works remain faithful to his flat painting style. His skilful handling of paint leads to the creation of nearly hyperrealistic compositions. When you look at the painting from a distance, they appear to be more like prints or cut–outs rather than paintings, without a single brush stroke to be found (tekst: Fiona van Schendel).
