Noah N.N. van Dongen was born in 1986 on the 24th of August in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. At the age of 21 he enrolled in the art academy of Rotterdam, the Willem de Kooning Academie. He is currently studying at the Graduate school of Visual Art and Design, Utrect. His main interests lie in the field of philosophy, psychology, biology and physics. Art was never his main interest and he always was more interested in the old masters then the contemporary artists. He has no religion and can be described as an apatheist even though his way of (looking at) life resembles that of Zen-Buddhism.
