Dutch artist Francien Krieg (1973) lives in the countryside in the middle of the Netherlands with her two children and husband, working full-time in her studio.
She graduated from the Royal Art Academy in The Hague in 1998, obtaining a degree in Monumental Art, which brought her to think conceptually and she discovered her fascination for the human body. Francien Krieg expressed her thoughts in these academic years with meat installations and human skins made of rubber.
A few years later, she picked up her passion for painting at The Free Academy of The Hague. She expressed her fascination for the human body in paintings with unusual body perspectives.
Soon her work was picked up by art collectors and art galleries. It became part of important Dutch art collections like the ING Collection and the former Scheringa Collection. One of the better galleries in The Netherlands, Gallery Mokum in Amsterdam, picked up on the quality of her work and initiated a cooperation.
