Henk van Meel was born in 1937 in Rotterdam. At the age of 19 he entered the Academy of Arts in Rotterdam (the current Willem de Kooning Academy). He specialized in fine arts and has continued to paint and draw ever since.
 
The themes of Henk van Meelís expressive paintings and drawings can be traced back to his upbringing in post-war Rotterdam, his extensive travels to Eastern Europe, Spain and Greece, as well as in his fascination with sports and jazz. You will often find his paintings charged with strong colours and movement. Boxers, football players, jazz musicians and bull fighterís will all perform before your eyes when you look at Henk van Meelís artwork.
