Milan Noordhoek

Energetic • Colorful • Exclusive


My goal is to make contemporary art moreattractive to the younger generations in our societies. I make use offigurative and easy to understand images. By applying bright and primarycolorful colours I try to make a strong appeal to young people and make artmore accessible as items to enjoy. The ultimate objective is to encouragepeople not to refrain from expressing themselves. Too many people do not dareto step outside mainstream trends and stay within generally accepted values anddo’s and dont’s. Personally, I have learned how rewarding it is to put my moodsand emotions of daily life on canvas whilst not care too much what other peoplethink of it.

The artistic talent I possess is not terraincognita. With several professional artists in my family, inspiration hasalways been close by. I have been painting for a number of years. Usually Iwork under my own business name “Milan-Art”. I was born and raised inEde and  currently work from my studio in Utrecht.

Impressive images on high-quality linencanvas with an aluminium frame are at the heart of all of my paintings. Thesize of my paintings range from 100X100 to 300X200 (cm). All works carry atitle or theme. In my works I use modern techniques like  palette knivesand paint sprays. This give the works their distinctive energetic appearance.The use of spray paint techniques also allow for and create unique vibrantcontrasts and shadow effects.

Milan creates a unique style by combiningaustere backdrops and expressive representations of characters on theforefront. With the use of shadow techniques and colour transitions, a threedimensional effect is created. Daring, energetic and colourful; those are thekey words for my paintings. Milan’s work creates an atmosphere of recognitionin a lively and dynamic day-to-day life. It allows people to complete their ownimagination. This is caused by the seemingly low level of detailing at firstsight. Recurring examinations will give more detail and bring new experiencesand appreciations of my art.   

Over the years, I have successfullyparticipated in a number of projects, including major expositions. In 2016 Ihave had my own exposition in collaboration with First Class Art. A wide rangeof objects,  have been produced; including an entire car during the Art& Food festival. The media has praised me a couple of times and they see apromising future ahead of me.
