About Maryleen Schiltkamp

Maryleen Schiltkamp studied art at the Rietveld Akademie and the Rijksakademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam (Netherlands) and has exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, including in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Curacao, Amsterdam, St.Petersburg and Prague. She has also performed at venues and festivals in London, Guildford, Bergen op Zoom, Prague and Cesis (Latvia). 

In recent years, Maryleen has been fascinated by the visual parallels of musical movement and colour relating to sound, through which various collaborations with musicians have developed. These include combining exhibitions with recitals (Musical Paintings); mixed-media projects for video-film (Musical Paintings in Process) and most recently performances of ‘action-painting’ during recitals (MusicPaintingLive).

Maryleen currently lives in Prague and maintains studios in both Prague and Amsterdam.
