Joep Caenen, [b. 1991, NL][BA Fine Arts, 2019, MAFAD] is a painter and installation artist based in Maastricht (NL).

Within his artistic practice Caenen considers art primarily as a medium for the expression of the intangible relationship between all things and beings. Often drawing inspiration from different cultures and memories of his childhood abroad brings forth new perspectives, confrontations and conversations upon daily life. His works function as tools that spark activity, playfulness and engagement. As such, people coming together has become a prominent aspect in his practice both as an activity and as a subject.

During the past years, Caenen participated in several exhibitions across the Netherlands, Belgium, England and Italy.
