Biography

Born in Leiden, Holland (1975), Casper Faasen gained access to the world of great Dutch artists whilst still young – evidence of their great influence is visible throughout his career. In 2002, he decided to commit solely to painting: he went on to win many competitions and prizes, becoming one of Holland’s most beloved artists. His works were first exhibited in world-renowned galleries in London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Zurich, and Hong Kong in 2008. Nowadays, alongside painting, he also conducts research on photography, achieving outstanding results in both activities.


Painting works

Casper Faasen re-interprets the history of Dutch painting with a style that verges on extreme monochromaticity. Profile portraits of women are the keynote of his pieces, where elegance, charm, simplicity, and refinement gracefully collide to give shape to timeless depictions. Monochrome forms and black and white combinations build the common denominator of the paintings that are most sought after by observant collectors from Italy and the rest of Europe.
