BIOGRAPHY

Myrthe Biesheuvel is a visual artist born and raised in The Netherlands. She studied for a BFA with a concentration in Painting at the University of North Carolina Charlotte in the USA and got a diploma in Classical Painting and Drawing Techniques at the Wackers academie in Amsterdam. Myrthe currently lives and works in Singapore. In August 2021 she had her first solo exhibition, Dreamscapes, at the Gillman Barracks in Singapore. 

Myrthe uses all kinds of mediums but oil paint is her favourite: 'I love the tactile quality and the directness of paint. In a world where we spend many hours a day on our phones and computer, it is liberating to use other senses like smell and touch and soothing to focus on one image for a longer period of time.'
