Hannah van Bergen
Hannah is known for her lively cityscapes and contemporary deckchair/ski scenes on canvas.
Using bold contrasts and vibrant colours, she applies acrylic paint in various forms to build up layers and texture to give the work a real sense of atmosphere.
Hannah conveys the hustle and bustle of urban life with the fluidity and movement of the distinctive lines she creates. In contrast, her deckchair scenes offer a sense of calmness and serenity.
Ultimately, she aims to transport the viewer into the scene and leave them there to enjoy it:
“People have described my work as “happy art” and I like that; I think if you’re going to invest in a painting and hang it on your wall, why shouldn’t it make you smile?”
Hannah's work is exhibited nationally including representation at London Affordable Art Fair. She undertakes commissions for private and corporate clients both in the UK and internationally.
