I created this artwork called “Fluidity” as a visual representation of our always changing lives. It is a beautiful reminder that nothing is set in stone. You, as a human being, are always transforming from one state to another.

Digital art created with PC and tablet, May 10, 2021

Patrick van Raalten is a multidisciplinary artist. He is best described as an artistic adventurer. He loves photography and uses a PC and tablet to create a unique style of layered paintings and images. He is also an electronic music maker. He loves creating textile art, especially through weaving. In his life the creative and spiritual are interwoven. The Art of Life itself is the rich source from which his creativity and works arise. Central themes in his work are revelation, contemplation and the synthesis of form and emptiness.
