performer / musician (percussion)
My name is Erik Vink.
Since 2003 I’m working as a professional artist. I started as a conventional painter. Big realistic oil paintings. After a few years I started working with other materials as well. Acryl paint on board, working hyperrealistic in black and white, making paintings on other objects like tables and wallpaintings. Since 2011 I’m focused on site specific work. Art-projects in under developed neighborhoods and performances together with musicians, DJ´s, poet´s, actors and other artists.
My career at Close Act started around 2002 as a musician. When the idea rised to make a new act with percussionists on stilts, I started practicing stiltwalking. The result was STX: percussionists on stilts and performing in other acts from Close Act as well. With great pleasure I perform in those different acts and shows.
Hope to see you at one of our shows!
