Fenna van der Vliet is a Mixed Media artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

It's important for her that the viewer can look at it for a long time and still discovers new elements.

Fenna's most important points of departure in the serie "Urban Battle" are architecture and streetart, particularly the battle between upcoming prosperous urban capitalism and the struggling disadvantaged districts in the densely populated big cities of this world. With her new serie; "World Impact", she would like to bring up the dialogue about the urbanisation and the effect it has on our nature.
The beauty of the brightly coloured work can be described as provoking the viewers' senses to think about the inevitable, metropolitan amalgamation of different cultures and lifestyles.
Everywhere around you there's replenishment and complement. It's there, but very often mistaken for resistance and opposition
