Hans Vanhorck (1952, Tegelen) was educated at the Eindhoven Academy of Industrial Design, but more importantly, he has a natural talent that allows him to create whatever he wants. From a figurative painter he developed into an abstract painter and followed his own path that made it possible to add special qualities to his painting. Since 2005, Vanhorck has been well on the way to developing a new dimension in his artistic existence. In addition to being a painter, the artist is now also a sculptor. He has also developed his own style as a sculptor. This style is so striking and related to his painterly approach that one can speak of a synthesis of painting and sculpture.
