Marja van den Hurk Profile picture A work with a thick wink to the old masters and with a modern twist of today. The painting in the background is "Still life with flowers in a glass vase" painted around 1650 - 1683 by the Dutch painter Jan Davidsz. de Heem. The beautiful lady in the foreground is Saint Cecilia, whose presumed painter was the Italian painter Onorio Marinari (1627 - 1715). The incandescent lamp Cecilia so mesmerized by is from my private collection ;-) .

The stylists at Art Heroes call my art style ‘Art with a Wink’. And I couldn't agree more. Life is serious enough as it is, don't you think? ;-)

I mainly make surrealist artworks and collages, because in those artstyles I can so wonderfully unleash my creativity and unbridled imagination! But I also enjoy gratefully taking advantage of the fact that museums all over the world make their paintings available digitally and then unleash my own creative touch on them.

Besides artworks of art with a generous or a small dose of humour, I also enjoy making more serious works of art. In my shop you can see that my artwork is very diverse, I simply cannot choose, I like many styles and subjects just too much.

In my shop you can also find some of my photographs (my other great hobby). The ‘disadvantage’ of photography is that I am dependent on what appears in front of my lens, as I cannot photograph things that are not there. With my digital paintings, I can go any way I want, wich I really enjoy. My photography is currently at a low level, but I definitely intend to pick up this fine hobby again.

Hopefully you'll find something that appeals to you in my shop. In any case, know that I made everything with a lot of love, attention, respect and pleasure!
