In her work, Nina van de Ven creates a personal universe grounded in the power of visual storytelling. She takes inspiration from iconography that covers the span of human civilization. The objects, motifs and symbols she combines in her drawings are taken from a variety of sources: historical, occult or everyday, and are packed with references, both to history and to pop culture.
Nina searches for balance in patterns. Freely associating between light, dark, posture and visual language she wanders from the primary idea, letting her work evolve along the process.
