‘ Reality often exceeds the imagination. Despite this knowledge, you compete with your imaginative powers. Like a wrestling game, you try to extract your ideas from the opponents. Gravity, that pulls your ideas down. Realism, that makes your ideas plausible. The obvious, that makes it tasteless. ‘


Patrick van Vliet (1981, Zevenbergen) studied Urban Planning at Utrecht University. Lives and works in Utrecht, The Netherlands. For more information about work, please contact by email:

Ambassadors Program

Each year, 4 persons are selected to take part in the Ambassadors Program. Participants of the program can choose available work from a selected part of the collection for 6 months. After this period, the participant can pass on the ambassadors ticket to the next person. For more information about participating the program, please contact through mail.

The Ambassadors Program is there to make work available for any enthusiasts. An important pillar of the program is that art should be available to anyone, regardless of the size of the wallet. Furthermore, the program aims to bring more attention to the painting craftmanship as a reaction to the ‘IKEAnisation’ of interior walls.
