About Christiaan

Christiaan Koen

Because of my curiosity in life, I portray it as my soul interprets it. Born and raised in an art environment nurtured my artistic abilities from an early age. I started to paint at 12, and in 1987 started attending private art classes under the tuition of Ockert Vermeulen (father of well-known artist Marie Vermeulen-Breedt). My second art teacher was Jancke Combrink. Both artists inspired me during my early years to develop my creative talents.

After school I completed my National Service in Bloemfontein at One Parachute Battalion and thereafter in 1993 enrolled for a National Diploma course in Fine Arts at Vaal Triangle Technical University. Throughout my studies, earning distinctions in object and figure drawing, I made my debut in Johannesburg in 1995. On several occasions I was nominated to exhibit with some of the finest artists in South Africa from which I received 2 merit awards. I have been acknowledged by living art icon, Professor Pierre Volschenk as an artist who delivers work of an exemplary standard. (Prof. Volschenk created the sculpture of Dr. Danie Craven at Stellenbosch University in South Africa).

Through years of training and experience, I believe that this has made me a versatile mature artist and designer, mastering many different mediums and styles. I specialize in the human form and create accurate portraits with a strong academic art approach. You will recognize this style by the extensive detail and almost photorealistic finish of my works. In the area of fine arts my work comprises of about 30 years of experience in drawing and painting, proving myself to be a well established artist.
