Elly Strik (Den Haag 1961)

Dutch artist Elly Strik has been living and working in Brussels for many years. She draws and paints curious characters on paper using thin transparent paint and subtle colours. The life-size portraits that she makes appear to show her own features, and yet these are not self-portraits in the traditional sense of the word, rather they are a representation of the subject's frame of mind.
