Margot van Huijkelom
Margot Huijkelom is an artist with a background in fashion, she’s based in France; to be exact in Barbizon. She was born, raised and educated in the Netherlands, so you could say that she came back to her roots with this exhibition at The Grand Hotel in Amsterdam.
We, at Mimi Berlin, met Margot the other day to have a look at her most recent works. Ms Huijkelom was so kind to take us on a tour around the ground floor, where the walls are covered with her paintings and illustrations.
Margot’s career has been a divers one, within the bounderies of fashion. She made illustrations, for Vogue Japan, L’officiel and numerous other glossy magazines. She sat next to the haute-couture runways for Le Monde and she has had her work published in several books, she also worked as the art-director for Gerbe in Paris. (more on that later on this blog, promised!) Next to this commisioned work she found out that she could fulfill more of her creative inspirations by painting. As mentioned above; she is based in Barbizon and that’s where she has an atelier where she creates ‘free work’, mostly on canvas made with natural pigments. These works are also on show at The Grand.

Huijkelom’s exhibition will run through to the end of August 2019 so you have plenty of time to take a stroll through the hallways of the hotel and enjoy her work for yourself. @margot_van_huijkelom
