Remi Van Alphen


My name is Suresh Doerga, my artist name is Rémi van Alphen and I’m from Holland. I have been looking at art and drawing since a young age and wanted to become an artist when I was young, but never got a chance to become this. But since a few years now, I have made the decision to take a chance at it. After a few years of self study of lots of different styles and lots of different types of mediums, I have reached the point to start my path as an artist. Because I tried lots of different styles and mediums, I have become an all-round artist and like to draw and paint lots of subjects, like landscapes, seascapes, portraits, still life’s and scenes. The old master style and the early impressionistic style with oil paints are my favorite way to paint. And for now, I have chosen to concentrate on portrait painting in the style of the old masters and landscapes and seascapes in the realistic/impressionistic way, so I can express my love of color and use lots of strong and bright colors. My favorite painters are, Leonardo da Vinci, the old Dutch masters like Rembrandt, Vermeer, van Dyck and Peter Lely, Titiaan, landscape painter Constable, Turner, Ruisdael, Cuyp and the early Impressionist like Monet, Pissarro, Gauguin, Degas, Manet. And my absolute favorite painter is Vincent van Gogh and he has the biggest influence in my art because of his love and use color and because of his bipolar disorder and a bit of a similar life story, also in my life.
