City Art Rotterdam is a project by Chris Ripken and Hannie Bierens. They live and work in a house full of art. Chris Ripken successfully completed the art academy in Maastricht in 1986, he also obtained a 1st degree teacher training there. In 1989 Chris came to Rotterdam with his family and focused on making “street art”, applied art that partially counteracted the deterioration that arose as a result of urban renovation. Chris has been strongly involved in the design of the public space with applied art for and by residents. As a sculptor Chris has realized a large collection of sculptures. Hannie Bierens has focused on social issues in her professional career. As a trainer / coach, Hannie is involved in the projects that Chris carries out.
