Bobby van den Hoorn
van den Hoorn Art Studio
Bobby Vandenhoorn, an artist by passion, was born on Vancouver Island BC in 1982, and has lived in the Lake Country area for the last 14 years. By the time he was 17 he was painting his first outdoor wall mural, and since then, he has commissioned over 50 different murals not only for homeowners in the Okanagan, but also for many businesses in the area. Aside from murals keeping him busy, Bobby’s real artistic passion is with oil on canvas. He uses a very traditional method, with a very untraditional, bold, bright and unique style. He has commissioned many custom pieces for others in the last 12 years in the Okanagan, as he is often approached to do custom paintings.

Bobby Continues to make the shift away from murals into canvas artworks, as this is his real passion.
There can be many different feelings, thoughts or emotions expressed through each of my artworks. The longer I have the viewer intrigued and curious with a painting, the more successful the painting is in my opinion.
My unique style is simply meant to provoke new thought, curiosity and interest through a classic method of painting.
