Jan Min is a watercolorist who has loved to draw and paint since childhood. Having stopped his medical career and attended the academy and master classes, he renewed his passion from 2000
Since 2015, he is a member of the board of directors of IWS Holland (International Watercolor Society), and since 2017 he is an official master member of IWS World.
Many awards, (international) exhibitions and publications in important magazines have followed.
Using his watercolor technique, he shows the viewer promising and complex landscapes.
He prefers marine themes and, in particular, street scenes.
Thanks to pure tonal values, light and shadows, he manages to establish a deep connection between his subject and the viewer.
