Erik Renssen (b. 1960, Deventer, NL.) is an independent artist - an intellectual assembler of images. Although primarily a painter, Renssen also enjoys making limited edition lithographs, linocuts and sculptures in bronze. Renssen’s admiration for the work of Pablo Picasso has resulted in a meticulous study of the great master’s work. He has internalised Picasso’s visual language and he uses it to paint his own personal stories. The artist is represented by Renssen Art Gallery which is located in the Spiegelstraat in Amsterdam’s historic art district.
