Chris Overbeeke

was born in Haaksbergen (The Netherlands) in 1946.

Education: Academy of Fine Arts and Design Enschede.

His work consists of still-life paintings and paintings of subjects of scenery in a technique derived from the 16th- and 17th-century masters, but with contemporary material and objects, including objects of some nostalgic charm. His aim is to combine composition and colour. The objects and fruit and also the realism used are secondary to the aim of radiating beauty, simplicity and brilliance.

His work is purchased by private persons and by collectors in the Netherlands and abroad. Much of his work finds its way to collectors a/o in the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany and the United States.
