Jan Min, 64 years old, is a passionated watercolor painter. His impressions are always colorfull and with atmosphere and light in it !


This representation of light and color are playing a central role,inciting an emotional connection between the spectator and it! Th egoal is to let feel the spectator his passion for the subject !!


His favorite subjects are streetviews, and maritime subjects.


As a child he was always drawing, the last 15 years he painted professional and he studied on the academy of art in Laren, Holland, where he lives with his family.


He followed several masterclasses with world famous watercolorists, who inspired him to only use the watercolor medium!


He exhibited many times on many places, galleries and is now in the committe of IWS Holland (international watercolor society) to promote and shares watercolors all-in the world.(Last in Fabriano, Italy as representative of Holland)


His works were spread out to Bali, Djakarta, Barcelona, Delhi, Canada and Bulgaria.


At this moment his works are to  be seen in New York (Ashok Jain Gallery) and in cape Cod ( Fine Art Palette gallery)


Publication in the well known art magazine Pratique des Arts is pending (october 2016) 


He is a well demanded teacher and gives many workshops. 





Jan loved to draw and to paint as he was a child and has returned to his passion for the arts as soon as his career in the medical sector did end at the beginning of the 2000s.


After a five year training at the Gooise Academy where he got to try various techniques, both graphic and visual, he started oil painting ,which he thoroughly enjoyed but in 2007 he traded it for watercolors after following several masterclasses.


Jan is driven by the pleasure he finds in creating atmosphere and lights found in the landscapes, cities and maritime subjects round him.


Using different tones and shadings, the painter commits to capture the beauty that inhabits the places he visits ,giving them a sensitivity that is doubled by a latent poetry, which he strives with the viewer.


Since 2015 he is a committee member of IWS Holland (International Watercolor Society), a non-profit organization devoting to promoting watercolor and has participated in many collective events and exhibitions that enabled him to share his work all round the world.


Also solo exhibitions did take place, many awards he received for his works, as publications in magazines and books.


In addition, he teaches his passion and skills  to many enthousiast  students by offering classes and workshops.


By devoting himself daily and consistently to the perfection and transmission of his technique, the artist earned the prestigious title of “Master” in the international Watercolorists in 2017.
