Walter van Rijn, born in the Netherlands, works and lives in the U.K. He studied landscape architecture in the Netherlands and received his masters degree in fine art in the UK. He is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Southampton, Winchester School of Art, researching the dispersed object of art and dispersion as a strategy.
His art practice revolves around the conventions of art, and questions the making and showing of art, using traditional and digital art forms, public art, or a combination of these media in ‘events’.
