About Robert Bink

Robert Bink (b. Schijndel, NL 1975) is a Dutch printmaker specializing in etching. His passion and curiosity for drawing and painting was seeded at a young age. Nowadays, his inspiration comes from historical constructions, scientific discoveries and music. Robert’s ideas are captured in an image consisting of shapes and lines. Both his intaglio and relief prints are mostly in black and white to maximize contrast effects and are in small editions. He has exhibited in the Netherlands and abroad. Next to his artistic activities, Robert works as a forensic scientist in The Hague.
