Jan Hendrix_-46.jpg

Visual artist Jan Hendrix was born in Maasbree (the Netherlands) in 1949. At the age of seventeen he started his education at the Art Academy in Den Bosch, which he had to interrupt prematurely. On the recommendation of the Japanese artist Shinkichi Tajiri, Hendrix began his studies in 1968 at the Ateliers 63 in Haarlem, a very progressive artist's workplace. Hendrix continued his master's degree from 1971 to 1975 at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, where he focused on film, photography and graphic art. In 1975 he traveled to Mexico to study the Mexican landscape there. During the last 40 years, Hendrix has exhibited his work worldwide in museums and galleries.
