Jan Pieter Fokkens Art

Dutch, b. 1979

Inspired by telescope images of deep space and early non-representational art, Jan Pieter Fokkens creates paintings of unimaginable sights through the tangible qualities of pattern, form and color.

Born in the Netherlands, Fokkens received his M.F.A. from the Burren College of Art, accredited by the National University of Ireland, Galway, and his B.F.A. from Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht, Netherlands. Fokkens lives and works in Chicago, IL.
