Massa Confusa: The Art of Christian Rex van Minnen
Christian Rex van Minnen
Christian Rex van Minnen’s art is challenging, intriguing, and disturbing. His provocative paintings depict the dynamic attraction and repulsion of mankind, often leaving the viewer deep in contemplative euphoria.
Since his first solo exhibition in 2009, his work has been shown extensively around the world, garnering a cult following of admirers who are deeply moved by his honest paintings, that often reflect the artist’s own thoughts about the fragile male ego and what it means to identify as a white American man.
Van Minnen’s first foray into showcasing his delightfully complex work, Massa Confusa: The Art of Christian Rex van Minnen is a deluxe art book filled with beautiful paintings that raise questions around our identity while also bringing out the grotesque from within all of us.
Christian Rex van Minnen was born in Providence, RI in 1980. Following his solo debut in 2009, his work has been internationally recognized and exhibited throughout the US and Europe.
