About Pieter Huijben
Pieter Huijben is an artist who expresses his ideas about life, science and society. He emphasizes the paradoxical, the hypocritical or, on the contrary, the laughable aspect. Huijben makes art with a mix of modern 3D techniques and traditional methods. In the viewer he arouses a feeling of recognition and surrealism.
Huijben was born in the Brabant village of Den Hout. During his early childhood, the Catholic Church still had an important role in his family and village. As an atheist, he now experiences, ironically, a youthful sentiment at the faded glory of the church. His memories of the smell, silent reverberation and dusty images are a recurring theme in his art.
Under the name Pete Surreal, Huijben is also active as a music writer and producer. He also has his own media studio called Sparkk.
