Chantal Van Houten

Chantal Van Houten is an artist from the Netherlands. She attended the academy of media and art in Amsterdam and worked for several years as a graphic designer. For her, art is bringing emotion and should give everyone a little tickling. Her paintings are primarily figurative and portraits; she believes facial expression and postures say a lot and can be inspiring and emotional. Her works in the ‘Tales of Art’ are from her Rumour collection. The theme, which stands central in the Rumour collection, relates to how everybody has been guilty of spreading a Rumour at some point in his or her life; it’s in our nature to do so. But why do we do this? Is it because we think it’s sound to judge or is it to make us feel better about ourselves? And do we think about the consequences of the Rumour on the subject? Chantel has had exhibitions in Netherlands, USA, Austria and Germany.
