“Fascination & love towards art and eachother, is our primary goal and driving force. It is the reason to our excistance, to do what we do. Every day, without fear returning to the base, the foundation, the purity.”
‘Back to Zero’.

Artist duo Stienstra & Dungen together form Studio Back to Zero. From passion and skill re-inventing is what we strive for in our works.

ART & GIFTS at our new location ‘Atelier ZK2’

Since April 1, 2022, we are also open at a new location in Zoutkamp. This new project is called Atelier ZK2.

Atelier ZK2 is located at Bakkerstraat 2 in Zoutkamp. The well-known building where the Vivo supermarket was located long ago. Our idea behind this was to restore the old supermarket to its glory and to let our art play a role in this instead of foodstuffs.

Atelier ZK2 has become a place where we exhibit a basic necessity of life . Namely: Art and affordable art gifts.

Not food for body, but food for mind.

Be welcome
