“Every painting I do starts with a feeling, a want, a need from deep inside me.”
Bastiaan van Stenis does not paint about things. He just paints. The moments that appear through layers of paint with nuances and proportions that surprise are pure and honest. His painting technique is considered and intense but revels in the freedom to see what happens next. A good painter has to be good at solving problems but nothing seems to be a problem for Van Stenis.
