Miko Veldkamp is a visual artist from the Netherlands. He graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and was a resident at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in 2013 and 2012 in Amsterdam. His paintings combine everyday scenes, personal memories or sentiments with a vigorous, painterly handwriting. They have the immediate readability of a pictogram but despite their flatness and naive style, there is a sense of spacial depth and motion. Central in his practice is the question: what can a painter see that photography and digital media cannot? During his year as a Hodder Fellow, he studied proximity and scale, experimenting with different painting surfaces and materials.
