A painter from my generation, who i have followed now for a long time. I never have been in the opportunity to buy¬† a painting for our collection, but maybe…..one day the time will come and i will succeed to buy one at auction. What i like about the paintings by Ben Sleeuwenhoek is the “humor” he inserts into his abstract paintings. Drops, stones, lamps, swings …every everyday object can have its place and function in a painting and what is more ….. the color scheme he uses is very pleasing to the eye and modern, so it blends in a perfect way with may interiors.

Ben Sleeuwenhoek has regular exhibitions at the large dutch Museums and has works present in the Zeeuws Museum and Museum Boymans van Beuningen

www.ftn-books.com has some Ben Sleeuwenhoek publications available
