wim heesakkers Biography

A little bit about me

I am a Dutch artist born in Breugel, a small village in the Netherlands in 1950. I live and work in the wooded surroundings of Lieshout, which is a small village adjacent to Nuenen one of the sources of inspiration to Vincent van Gogh. I am a self-taught man and let myself be inspired by what he comes across. Materials and techniques are a challenge to me. The point of departure is his desire to master all occurring techniques and to execute all operations himself. This in order to create as authentic a work as possible. To accept the challenge of the experiment is an absolute must for me. I consider that as the duty of an artist.
