`Having first trained as a graphic designer, the Dutch artist Jan-Hein Arens is a difficult one to pigeon-hole. It instantly singles him out as a collector s dream and an art critic s nightmare. 

After having surrendered his soul to art, the Unica himself is a 21st century take on Dada, CoBrA and Pop art combined. His works are amalgamations of various techniques, which ought not work together, and yet they do.  

To sum up the artists work, it is that of creating visual puns upon the human condition. But more than that, Arens tackles quite profound stuff with a dry sense of humour. You soon discover witty and contrasting juxtapositions. You also find evidence of an appreciation for short-hand scripples which help marinate the work to its full flavour.
