About Rein de Lege

I'm a Dutch artist, living and working in Barcelona since 1988.

Education

At the age of 16, I started studying at the “Rijks-Academie” in Amsterdam (1971–1975) and ran through the classic education of drawing and painting, with special attention to model drawing. Then I quit, spending 2 years doing other things, before I went to “Academie Minerva” in Groningen to finish my study (1977–1980). Beside drawing and painting, I focussed on graphical art: etching and lithography.

After visiting Barcelona for the first time in 1978,I became so fascinated by the life in the streets and the bars of “Barrio Chino” ( the “Chinese Quarter”- in reality, it never was a quarter for Chinese people to live- ) that, after several visits over the years, I decided to take up permanent residence in the capital of Catalonia ( 1988 ) where I continue to live to this day. I´m working in a more rural area, in Vilanova i la Geltrú, where I have painting-studio.

Events

My works are internationally exhibited in art-galleries and art-fairs.
