Rein Kooyman’s  work is spread across an array of creative landscapes, he finds inspiration through different cultures and nature. This stems from his childhood growing up surrounded by cinematic scenery and the vastness of the dunes and the North Sea. 
A love for natural light, travel and global outlooks are but some his motivation whilst developing his career. Rein Kooyman’s work is characterized by the appearance of austerity. A subtle form of gloom that magically forces you to stand still.
