Jan Tromp (b. 1995, NL) is a Dutch artist who earned his fine arts degree at HKU in Utrecht and completed his master's in painting at the Royal Academy in Antwerp in 2023. Inspired by unintentional traces in daily life, Jan's work spans photography, collages, cut-out paintings, and music. His art reflects a keen observation of the ordinary, distilling it into evocative visual narratives. The artist applies a dynamic approach and ability to capture the extraordinary in the mundane.
