Christian van Hedel
Visual artist Christian van Hedel (1974) mainly paints
non-figurative abstract art.
He has now been active as a visual artist for more than 20 years.
Christian started out as an autodidact artist, but after attending various workshops
he got more and more into it.
For example, he followed the fine-art course at the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU).
His work can be found regularly at various art fairs and exhibitions in
The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Denmark, France, Italy, China, New York
and everything in between.
Christian has already won several international public awards for his artworks.
His works are therefore sold worldwide.
In a museum in China, his work is part of a permanent collection of the museum.
At the beginning of 2017, Christian started an entirely new project that he called
This new series consists of colorful wall-filling paintings.
The works are inspired by the natural and essential spiritual energies
from everyday life.
Awareness of the unconscious, become opaque as well as transparent
spots, lines, shapes and lines painted on canvas or on wooden panels.
The contrasts between dark and light, colors and black and white always predominate.
The shapes are very precisely defined, evoked precisely by the paint material
or created by idiosyncratic use of pencils or palette knives.
Because of the black lines Christian uses in his work,
it becomes an abstract comic-like representation that brings the whole into balance.
His work leans towards Street art or Urban art.
The works of art are visual aggregations of experiences, dreams and reflections.
Autobiographical images, in which Christian tries the field of observation
to broaden beyond the purely visual.
There is more to it than meets the eye; art as food for the eye and the mind.
‘Art is something absolute, something positive, which gives power just as food gives power’
