Meinbert Gozewijn van Soest (1964, Alkmaar) was educated in Monumental Design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Meinbert Gozewijn does not draw portraits. He draws the experience of watching a face, and thus gives us the opportunity to join in as if looking at an event taking place in time. In his drawings he not only interested in the person depicted; the portrait seems to prompt aspects of human nature as well as the human facial features.
