Koos Buist (born 1984, Groningen, Netherlands) grew up on the countryside around Ezinge. Here is where the foundations were laid for his love to work with, work in and work for nature. Moving to the city of Groningen to study at the Art Academy Minerva, his work started to focus on the micro nature outdoors and indoors. He graduated in 2010.
Koos now works as an interdisciplinary artist with his studio based in the Biotoop at Haren, Netherlands. His work consists of installations, films, and collaborative projects with other artists and biologists.
