About DAS art
DAS art is an initiative by Daan and Astrid. Two Dutch sisters who practice art. We create a wide variety of artwork. From small drypoint etchings to large drawings and everything in between. Our base is the art of drawing. From there we explore different techniques and materials.
Currently Daan explores drawing and painting human faces through studies and sketching. She considers trying to master the right proportions of a face fluently and to capture the essence of the model easily as an art practice in itself. But most of all her art practice is a search for her own voice by trying different art techniques, materials, color and composition.
June 2016 Astrid graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Arendonk with the short animation ‘Moving into stillness’. June 2021 she completed 5 years of printmaking at the same academy. At this moment she explores the conceptual side of drawing. Trying to work from a place of observing and doing instead of drawing what we think something should look like.
