Dutch artist, painter and sculptor Jeroen Vinken studied at the Academy of Industrial Design in Eindhoven. Vinken uses textile as a medium for his art, creating ‘woven images’ and ‘floor objects’. These are made using familiar weaving techniques and materials but the results are extraordinary and often have a sculptural quality. Alongside such art works, Vinken produces industrial textile designs for production. He always attempts to add something extra to his designs, an element that elevates his work above what already exists.
