Joachim Van Der Vlugt

Joachim van der Vlugt, a Dutch painter based in Luxembourg, merges a distinctly contemporary style with the timeless influence of classical Dutch masters. His work bridges traditional landscape and portrait genres, creating a unique blend of old and new. Educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Maastricht, van der Vlugt initially explored fashion design before fully committing to painting. His admiration for the great Flemish masters is evident in his work, which embraces their influence wholeheartedly. Utilizing a deliberately limited and dark color palette—comprising black, white, brown, beige, and blue—he meticulously layers paint to manipulate light and its subtleties. This technique allows him to evoke ethereal images and figures with remarkable delicacy. He continuously refines his compositions, adding layers, emphasizing certain areas, and integrating geometric shapes or semi-transparent droplets. This process culminates in what he describes as an “orchestrated chaos.” Van der Vlugt’s cultured paintings are rich with spiritual and almost esoteric elements. He often embeds hidden, nearly invisible images within the layers of his work, inviting viewers to continually discover new aspects and engage with his art on a deeper level. For the past two decades, Joachim van der Vlugt has showcased his work primarily across Europe, featuring in Luxembourgish, Dutch, and German galleries, as well as at various contemporary art fairs.
