Feline Zegers' paintings have the unique ability of stirring up contradictory emotions in its viewers. Being both beautiful and grotesque, the paintings' onlookers are completely entranced to hold eye contact with the talented artist's pieces while simultaneously fighting their urge to look away due to the paintings' shocking and sometimes scary visuals. This is all by design of course, as Feline Zegers admits she enjoys exploring the interplay and relationship between polarizing ideas such as "good and evil." Her ability to visually express conflicting concepts on a singular canvas, along with her high level of technical precision and execution, makes her an up-and-coming artist to really look out for.

Feline Zegers is a graduate of the Willem de Kooning academy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She continues to work in the Netherlands as both an illustrator and photographer.
