Henk Vandenberg studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Rotterdam
from 1980 until 1985.
He graduated in the subjects of drawing, painting and graphical arts. During his studies he attended classes of Cees Spermon, Jaap van den Ende and Hannes Postma.
After a period in which Henk Vandenberg made abstract work, he became more and more interested in the perception of pictorial space in painting.
Simultaneously he became aware of the fact that the subjects and forms he used, started to develop into figuration, landscape figuration in particular. In order to get more opportunities for developing the subject of pictorial space, van den Berg gradually decided to become a landscape painter.
Van den Berg is convinced that, he can develop his interest in pictorial space in landscape painting. Furthermore, it gives him the opportunity to show this perception of pictorial space to the public.

VBKD Generale Bankprijs.
