Miles Ahead
153 x 184 cm
Acrylic on canvas

Coen Blankwaard launched his artistic career in 1990, and his quick, expressive paintings have since made him a household name.

He uses figurative shapes and imagery in his work to tell his own story and immerse you in his imaginary world.


The world is a mess!


Blankwaard paints his experiences and what speaks to him.

His head is packed with images, and this is how he shares them with the world. For him, it’s a kind of outlet that allows him to communicate with others and spread his message.

Coen has little interest in minutely developing his work, but rather in the emotion and the message that it conveys to the viewer.


Dutch, born in Eindhoven on 24 February 1965.
