Casper Van Houten was born in Antwerpen, Belgium in 1966.
Casper studied fine art at the Academy of Modern Art in Arendonk, where his technique first began to form.
After completing his art education, Casper went on to start work as a teacher of painting and sculpture. After some years he began to work for several graphic design companies as an art-director, whilst still carrying on his passion for painting.
Over the last few years Casper has been working on his skills as a painter and developing his quirky style to capture the character of his subjects.
Interestingly Casper mostly paints at night, when the world is a sleep and the night silent. That is when his inspiration strikes and as with many artists it is impossible to resist the draw of a brush.
