"Everything is connected, everything starts with you connecting"
RéNoo was born in Grave(NB) in the Netherlands. Now he lives in Hillegom(ZH) where his main atelier is located in 'De School'. His second atelier is in Haarlem.
He has a history of making things in different fields, like video, music and realistic painting, abstract painting, objects and installation.
It's all about repetition, in colors, words and form and sometime sound, but also about vulnerability and serendipity. His work has been called Filosophical and monumental. He regards himself as a "Homo ludens". As he enjoys making art in a playful kind off way.
"The closer you can relate to yourself, the more recognizable it becomes for a large amount of people. For me, that is the goal as an artist, hitting that string that touches people. Why? Because this is my way of making art, establishing a connection. As an artist, I can give comfort and softening, joy and recognition and sometimes confrontation in a very conscious way. I always work from the heart".
RéNoo has been involved in a team of the GGZInGeest (psychiatry) to acquire art for the new Clinic 'De nieuwe Valerius' nearby the VUMC hospital in Amsterdam. (In collaboration with 'De cultuur Compagnie Noord Holland'). He was asked to assist the artist Gijs Frieling in painting his work in the entree in 'De westflank'
