About

Vincent de Haan is a self-taught painter working with a wide range of different paints and materials. After having spent the first seven years his childhood growing up in subtropical Durban, South Africa, he moved with his family to the Netherlands in the late 1990’s. After obtaining a Masters degree in Hydrology and Hydrogeology at Stockholm University, Sweden, he lived and worked in London and Kampala, Uganda.

Africa holds a special place in his heart and the vibrant colors, rich culture and natural beauty of this magical continent have inspired him greatly and still do every day. You could say Vincent’s style is formed by a dynamic mix of African and European influences and experiences. The balance between order and chaos is often a reoccurring theme is his work. Currently Vincent is living and working from his home based studio in Den Bosch, the Netherlands.
