Roos Vink (1994) is a cancerian artist based in Groningen, Holland. She was raised next to a fairy-like forest in the north of Holland, Emmen. From 2012 to 2016 she studied illustration at the art academy Minerva, Groningen.



Within her paintings she wants to examine and shape the innerworld of human beings in a symbolic, surrealistic and alienated way. Mostly abstracted female figures, in a variety of colours and shapes, constitute the starting point of the works, functioning as some kind of self-portraits.


To me making art is discovering and staying curious, both contentwise as for its looks. I love the endless amount of possibilities, but also making clear choices within a work. I also consider art as a chance to show reality in a fresh, clear and unexpected way.’



Besides visual art she is fascinated by the world of words and making music. It’s also a playground in which the innerworld can be expressed. Music compositions are really similar to paintings and all it's layers and details, but it is painting with sounds.

'My art (in all its forms) is created from within, with my intention, but it lives on in your interpretation and meaning.'
