KAT KLERKS BIOGRAPHY
Being raised by a creative, imaginative, and surrealistic-painter father, Kat Klerks was stimulated to explore the many opportunities life would offer her and let nothing but reality stand in her way; “You can dream, but don’t let dreams be your master”.
Spending many years in search of what her exact art form would be, Abstract Expressionism and Fauvism finally found her. Constantly seeking for balance of imperfection in both colors and forms, Klerks realizes it is the imperfection that creates sense in her paintings. “I am learning more and more about the why of what I make. For example, when my daughter was born, I started using a lot of pink without really realizing it. And since our beach house I make other shapes through what I see around me. During the time of Covid-19, I’ve had an enormous need for color, for cheerfulness.”
Kat Klerks has now gathered a large following all over the globe and has found representation in Paris, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Belgium, and now in the United States. Klerks work currently adorns an ample array of walls, from grand villas to tiny houses to the walls of the new leading luxury boutique hotels Lou Pinet (St. Tropez), Croisette Beach Sofitel (Cannes), August (Antwerp) and The Park Centraal Hotel (Amsterdam).
