Художник Jan Min

Jan Min, Netherlands

Jan loved to draw and paint when he was a child already and has returned to his passion for the arts as soon as his career in the medical sector ended, at the beginning of the 2000s. He then began a five-year training at the Gooise Academy of Laren where he got teaching in various techniques, graphic and visual

He restarted his career in oil painting, which he thoroughly enjoys, and the trading it for the watercolor two years later after following some masterclasses.

He was so in love with this technique, that he never changed more until nowadays.

Jan is driven by the pleasure he finds in recreating atmosphere and lights found in the land and seascapes around him. He enjoys representing urban settings and maritime subjects.

Using different tones and shadings, the painter commits to capturing the beauty that inhabits the places he visits, giving them a sensitivity that is doubled with a latent poetry, which he strives to communicate with the viewer.

Since 2015 Jan has been a committee member of the Dutch Branch of the International Watercolor Society (IWS) - a non-profit organization devoted to promote watercolor- and has participated in many collective events that enabled him to share his works all around the world.

He is often asked as an invited artist for high standard exhibitions.

In addition, he teaches his passion and skills to many amateurs by offering classes and workshops (inter) national, did win a lot of prestigious awards and was published many times in several well-known International magazines. He is an international jury member. 

By devoting himself daily and consistently to the perfection and transmission of his technique, the artist earned the prestigious title of “Master” in the international organization of IWS World in April 2017.
