Denis Young

Aluminium art

Denis Young was born in Eindhoven in the year of 1971, and started on early age with drawing comics.  After this he got fascinated by airbrushing, abstract, figurative art.

Denis started in 1997 at the Art Academy of Arendonk, where he got specialized in painting with oil based paint and the use of thick paintbrushes for expressionistic and abstract works. After attending the Art Academy, he got married with Saskia and a few years later the Young family was completed with two girls Isa and Jill. His dreams to make Art got more in the background as he achieved his certifications to become a proffesional Industrial screenprinter for 15 years.

Denis took the opportunity in 2014 of using his craftmanship to create raw Industrial Art! Inspired by extraordinary faces of people, and music for colourful abstract and figurative Artworks.

Especially in the portraits one can observe the daring and intricate play between the use of contrast and texture(relief) of the aluminium, where the consciously leaving out of the eyes, and the creation of wrinkles shroud each art piece with a certain mystique.

The use of texture and relief of the aluminum in combination with the creative use of lighting ensures the unique and daring character of each individual (art)piece, and is a process from which he, as an artist, enjoys great (personal) satisfaction.
