About me

Luuk Leijtens

The power of both myth and art is this magical ability to open doors, to make connections,
not only between us and the natural world,
but between us and the rest of humanity.
Myths show us what we have in common with every other human being, 
no matter what culture we come from, no matter what century we live in… 
And at the same time, mythic stories and art celebrate our essential differences. – Alan Lee

Luuk Leijtens

Hey there! I’m a Dutch artist who had a blast growing up in eastern Holland during the nineties. When I was just fourteen, my art teacher inspired me to pursue a career as an artist and art teacher myself. As a student, I was all about creating intuitive paintings and community art that spoke to people on a deeper level.

I’ve always been fascinated by the Atlas myth and the Flying Dutchman story, so I started making sculptures based on these historical tales. But my true passion lies in exploring ways to communicate certain feelings or images that my intuition tells me to share. After graduating from the Artez Institute of the Arts in Arnhem in 2017, I shifted my focus to cosmic scenes and human nature. Think men and women floating through space, trying to find balance in a chaotic universe. 

My creative process is all about tapping into my feelings, thoughts, and sense of humor to explore a wide range of subjects. I love exposing all my (semi-)figurative representations to the world, so that everyone can benefit from my unique perspective. As an artist, I’m here to paint a world that’s not always visible to the naked eye – the world of ideas, dreams, and things that don’t exist. That’s where my art truly comes to life!
