The Sikkens Prize for colour application will be awarded to Krijn de Koning on the 1st of December in Rotterdam.
The Sikkens Foundation stimulates and draws attention to developments in the application of colour. Several renowned artists received the prize in the past, like Gerrit Rietveld, Le Corbusier and Theo van Doesburg.
This year, Dutch artist Krijn de Koning (1963) will receive the prestigious award for his work. De Koning creates outspoken interventions in existing spaces, with a starring role for colour. Visitors have strong sensorial experiences in De Koning’s works of art, that discusses the relation between man and environement.
For the occasion of the Sikkens Prize, Krijn de Koning will expose an artefact on December 1.
