Sjeng Kessels (1996) is a Dutch artist who works across painting, drawing, collage, video and performance. His highly intuitive practice addresses the primal needs and manic behavior that we learn to repress in adult life. His works provide a place for brutal honesty and all the challenges that come with it; extreme emotions, the courage to embrace naivety and a redeeming acknowledgement of human fragility. Sjeng Kessels works with the complexity that exists within simplicity. He currently lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
