Ralph de Lange works in various disciplines. He combines painting, photography, and various media in a study of images around the concept of the human condition. His work focuses on the search for the feasibility of the ideal Western philosophy. In human desire, images in the media and films take on a life of their own. On the other hand, the works of art present the thoughts about a world, solidified in past tense, and with that represent its impossibility. The paradoxical nature of desires is what intrigues him. The wish with the uncertainty of its outcome. In addition to being an artist, he is the founder of the Amsterdam art academy under the name M-I-X. The three letters stand for Mentality - Identity - eXpectation. The search through a system in art education for the identity of the artist. That which makes a person unique, genuine and outstanding.

MIX is a multi-disciplinary study in, among other, painting, drawing, three-dimensional, media, photography and video art. He is an innovator in art education by applying the M-I-X method. A method to get closer to the meaning of making art. He works with this MIX method at art academies in Amsterdam, Zwolle, Haarlem, Oegstgeest, Alkmaar and Munich - Germany. He coaches artists from all over the world in their own style of research. The originality, the unique, the authenticity. He uses the words "TRUE SELF". Specialized in finding and redefining the core of the artist, his individuality of style and the way in which you bring that specific art to the world in the best possible way.

Mission

Mission statement

The MIXacademy facilitates the discovery of the students ‘true self’ and guides the development of their own style through education, aiming to leave each student with the ability to make a living as an artist. To be creative from within, not to enforce upon, but using what is already there and focusing on your strength.

The MIX core values are based upon the mentality of a newly created self. Developing as a creative person ready to start a career as an independent artist with the needed expression and openness to the world.

Artists need to be entrepreneurs in order to reach their public. It is important during your studies to create the needed relationships with other artists. Whether building your professional network or even encountering the needed people to build the creative organization of your dreams, the MIX facilitates these connections. Take your first steps at the MIX to become a professional entrepreneur.

The MIX academy offers two programs in fine art. The MIX is internationally oriented and allows everybody with a talent to sign in for an application.

Do not think about problems. Think of possibilities.

From creativity into creative Entrepreneurship: get to work, make your own individual art, branding - start a business.
