"Huiskens is a stunning success story and a very collectible contemporary artist."
--AAA President Thom Bierdz

Randal Huiskens is a Chicago area fine artist whose principal medium is acrylic paint on canvas. His latest works are a series of Pop Art paintings in a style he calls neo-divisionism. This method of painting allows for the application of color into a painting unrelated to the actual subject. It also takes a simple subject and allows for an energetic interpretation that goes far beyond the actual subject. He also works in a style that he describes as "studies of color, pattern, texture and form coupled with a compulsive graphomania extrapolated through the motif of the butterfly." In addition, he paints in traditional art styles, mostly influenced by Post Impressionist artists as well as modern artists of the twentieth century.

Randal began to study art seriously while in high school, and was chosen for the first Michigan Summer Institute for Gifted Students on the campus of Michigan State University in 1982. He enrolled in the MSU Art program shortly thereafter. In 1987 one of his paintings won the first place award in the Undergraduate Art Exhibition. The following year, he was awarded a Teachers Scholarship in the Field Of Painting. He obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1988 with an emphasis in painting.
