Vera Gulikers (NL)
Vera Gulikers (b.1991, NL) holds a Master of Fine Art degree acquired from Sint Lucas University College of Fine Art and Design Antwerp (2016), and a Bachelor of Fine Art from Maastricht Academy of Fine Art and Design (2014). In 2017, she was awarded the Royal Prize of Modern Painting for her works Poetsdoek and Testdoek -both paintings made with egg-tempera. During her stay at Van Eyck she focused on painting and sculpture by examining the medium of painting itself and its close relation to the painterly qualities of “female” conventions. She works with old painting techniques like egg-tempera and fresco, together with screen printing, couture textiles, cleaning products, and puff materials.
