About the Artist

Joel Chaim Holtzman is an illustrator/concept artist based in the Netherlands. With a passion for art since a young age, around his twenties he began to paint more intensely with acrylics and oils, until he found his favourite medium which he uses to this day as a professional artist: digital painting. His greatest influences are Biblical themes, mythology, history, and the grotesque; combining these elements to share stories with the world.
