Feijen is a contemporary artist who carries forth the famous Dutch tradition started by the 17th Century masters. He paints his still life in the classical way in great detail. Especially, have a look at his use of rich colours, which create a warm atmosphere.
A distinguishing mark of Feijen's work is the use of warm colours and a very detailed expression of materials. Nowadays the classic Still Life art form is enjoying a growth within art circles nevertheless only a few excel. Feijen is one of those few belonging to the modern masters where painting no longer holds any secret for them. His exceptional talent lies in the created atmosphere and his gift of limitation. A simple apple, an old fashioned tea container or an antique vase appears real. It is therefore no surprise that his warm still life's claim a lot of approval.
