Simon Schrikker

"Typically, animals are central to my work, in the past, especially dogs. Important in this choice is the translation into paint and a certain sense of a clichéd threat that I wish to evoke in the viewer." from Artist statement, Simon Schrikker, 2015

Schrikker (1973, Utrecht) lives and works in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
