Artist Profile

Rika_About.jpg

Rika Maja Duevel is a painter and mixed media artist originally from Stavanger, Norway and resides in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She is a global nomad and this triggers the nucleus of her work. With each new adventure, she finds new inspiration. Her artwork manifests from her daily experiences, the idea of capturing the moment. She allows herself to embrace or let go of each experience by sharing a piece of it with others. Her wish is that the observer might be able to pull their own experience from each piece. As a painter and mixed media artist, she explores the boundaries of what the material can do. She often uses vibrant colors and patterns to document each story. A sketchbook always at her reach, is her portable way of capturing each idea as they come. This process has taken her all over the world and with each destination she documents a different story, a different moment. 

 

An Award Winning Artist, Rika Maja Duevel graduated from Wheaton College, SACI, and Lesley University and then took her art studies and continued her art path around the world. In just the last year she has exhibited in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Rome, Venice, Milan in Italy, Barcelona, Granada, Spain, Paris, France. An Artist in Resident, in Granada, Spain, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. A Guest Artist Lecturer at the University of Amsterdam’s Business School (UVA) where she spoke about being an artist and entrepreneur and published in this year's “50 Artists to Watch 2023 Edition” by the Florence Contemporary Gallery and the “Artists of Today and Tomorrow 3” by Monica Ferrarini.
