Art has always been an essential part of Micky Hoogendijk. Born in Amsterdam July 8, 1970, Hoogendijk grew up immersed in an international environment of art; surrounded by artists, art dealers, theater makers, actors and dancers. Her grandfather, Dirk Hoogendijk, was one the most successful art dealers in The Netherlands in the last century. He used his perceptive eye to enrich many museums, including the Rijksmuseum, with the works of the Dutch Masters. As a young girl, Hoogendijk also spent many hours in the painting workshop of her father, the painter Roelof Frankot, who began as a photographer before moving his focus to abstract art.
As a young adult in the 90s, a time when postmodernism was just revealing itself, Hoogendijk was in the center of the Amsterdam and International art scene as both the wife and business partner of famous postmodern artist Rob Scholte. Only in her 20s, she ran the company Rob Scholte BV and was project manager of the prestigious and ambitious work Après nous le deluge, a wall and ceiling painting of 1,200 square meters in Nagasaki, Japan.
The Association of International Photography Art Dealers encourages public support of fine art photography by acting as a collective voice for the dealers in fine art photography and through communication and education that enhances the confidence of the public, museums, institutions and others in responsible fine art photography dealers. The photography show runs until April 17.
