Jos van der Vleuten (born 1961 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands) lives and works in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. 

After his study at the design academy in Eindhoven (the Netherlands) Jos worked for many years as a graphic designer and art director both independently and in permanent employment at advertising agencies and later in the ICT industry.. 

In 2011 Jos started painting as a counterpart to his daily digital work in ICT.
Large canvases with gigantic portraits approach the viewer in a penetrating way and are the result of an exceptional ambition to paint..

Jos currently has a studio above a second-hand shop and, in addition to the enormous portraits, he is also involved in smaller but no less ambitious projects, still lifes painted alla prima, for which the shop on the ground floor offers more than enough props and inspiration.
