Bas Steens (1996) is a multidisciplinary artist from The Netherlands whose focus is on telling stories with his work. Graduating with a project about the Death Valley desert, he kept thinking about the question: “What makes the desert so magical?” And became fascinated with desert stories. These stories often touch on bigger themes like the relation between humans and nature, climate change, myths, self reflection and ancient cultures. The way he adresses them often results in mixed media projects experimenting with collage, animation, sculpture, illustration etc.
I'm also part of art collective Zut Mon Sac, located in Breda (NL). With seven other artists from different disciplines we share a studio space and together we are developing exhibitions, publications, events, educational programmes etc. For more information you can visit our website or if you have questions feel free to send us an email via
