Interview in FMS-Magazine

Posted on May 8, 2020

FMS-Magazine has featured an interview with me. In the article I talk about my work and my creative journey of life.

Paul Brouns is an artist, who is intrigued by the geometry and rhythm in architecture, and uses photography as a medium for creating art. “I am creating a body of work that is offered in limited edition prints, mostly not more than five or eight prints per image in three basic sizes (small, medium and large). I sell these through a couple of galleries in different countries (Holland, the US, India, and South Korea) but also directly at art fairs in Amsterdam, London, New York and Tokyo.”

“My fondness of using my imagination when drawing at home, in time, has evolved into creating new realities out of my photographic material in my studio.”
