LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
José Sintnicolaas is a Dutch artist based in Italy. After a business career she went to the Art Academy in Belgium to fulfill her dream. She followed art history courses at Tilburg University.
She lived in Shanghai, Singapore and Italy for the last 9 years and draws inspiration from these experiences and the many other countries she has travelled to. She exhibited in Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Amsterdam and Florence.
In Singapore she developed her series ‘Earth’ as a protest against massive pollution and destruction she witnessed in South East Asia and China. Her series Earth is a celebration of our beautiful planet earth. Through art she tries to create more awareness that humans are destroying this planet rapidly and action should be taken against it urgently. We need sustainability and rehabilitation of our planet to give our children a safe future.
José works in mixed media, using unusual materials and different techniques to create her artworks. She builds up layers of texture to create structures and depth in her works using glass, sand, paper or other 'elements of the earth' . She likes to be expressive with pallet and brush achieving interesting textures.
Her artworks can be found in collections in Singapore, Australia, Japan, US, Canada, Belgium, United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
