about Marius van Dokkum

The best is yet to be

Sometimes, in spite of the inexorable machine of time, of changes and goodbyes, life shows itself in a totally touching and ironic way. You wonder why you should not always see it that way, why there are days far more sorrow, full of anxieties and fears. And that’s when memories become so important.

Born in 1957, in Andijk, Marius van Dokkum is an example of artist out of the Internet, you can’t find so much about him around the web. He studied at the Christian Academy for Expressive Art in Kampen, with principle subject Illustration.

Unrequited love

Second Youth Cut

After the academy he settled in Apeldoorn, where he is still working as art painter, illustrator and designer. His painting consist of still lifes, portraits and general subjects. The general subjects often have something humorous about them.

The senior citizens love, the family and its conventions, are at the center, in their everyday simplicity, but the colors of Marius give them a magic that allows the viewer to be moved and appreciate it as something new.
