ARTNOMADEN is an art community consisting of a group of connected artists who joined forces to gain independency. This self-sustaining group offers their artists a platform to show their work off the beaten track, original and without commercial strategy.

ARTNOMADEN is already an international group of members from the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Brazil and is still growing!
Members of the group fluctuate regularly. Former members are Marc Janssens (BE, Ceramics), Lobke Burgers (NL, MixedMedia), Marie Louise Elshout (NL, Paintings Drawings).
Each artist has his or her own personal style and works in different areas; ceramics alongside paintings, sculptures made of fabric alongside photography and clay alongside video art.
Loveliness and menace appear hand in hand. Power and fragility are captured in an unattainable balance. Deception walks the same road as beauty. Ultimate Beauty seduces the spectator to watch and lead them to the deeper layers of our soul.
The art of the group is strongly related to each other, they all work figuratively, associatively and with a layered visual language. The images interact with each other and reinforce each other. The theme is diverse, on the one hand there is the fascination and the awe of Nature, where the darker side is revealed, on the other hand the artists investigate the human existence, ‘la condition humaine’.
ARTNOMADEN creates inspiring exhibitions at unique locations. The art community offers a complete package from start to end to create a well balanced exhibition. This always takes place in consultation with the owner and / or manager of the location.
The initiative to collect this group of inspiring artists was instigated by the Dutch photographer dindi. and the Swedish painter Birgitta Sundström Jansdotter in 2018.
