‚Ä®Mikel van Gelderen (1963) lives and works in Amsterdam. In the early 1980s he studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (now St. Joost School of Fine Art and Design) in Den Bosch. He combined working as an artist with working as an partner in Zeinstra van Gelderen architects and scenographic installations for theatre maker Tjyying Liu. His architectural and scenographic work is closely linked to his visual art. 

With LANDSCAPES, Mikel van Gelderen depicts imaginary nature fantasies that lure the viewer into introspection. The works are made of acrylic and charcoal on canvas.
