They consider Charles Darwin to be their executive director, their sources of inspiration are still lives by 16th and 17th century painters such as Jan Weenix, Frans Snijders and Melchior d'Hondecoeter and British artist Damien Hirst is their biggest fan. He bought their first collection of art works. You can call them flamboyant, special or strange, but the least you can say is that the career of Darwin, Sinke & van Tongeren is impressive. Their work is devoted to showing the ultimate beauty and magic of nature and amazes by the astonishing sculptured compositions, reviving animals. An ode to nature in all its glory. The missing link between classic taxidermy and modern art.
