René van der Klooster is multifaceted. Besides an author of poetry and plays (in Dutch and English) and prose (in Dutch), he practices visual arts, including drawing, painting and sculpting, moreover, formerly he worked as an architect and in that capacity he is currently designing lamps. The writing and the arts mainly originate from a vast dream world, a certain grip on the subconsciousness and frequent pre mystical and mystical experiences.

The subjects that originate from these experiences are mainly represented in linden wood panels with cut out reliefs that add an extra dimension of light and shade. He depicts profound subjects, while pouring his inner thoughts and emotions into each artwork using various additional technics, such as prints and inlay, and various materials, such as gold leaf and pour on varnish, that add significance to his artwork.


In 2017 he was with nine works a participant of the exhibition Beeldenstorm in the Abbey of Middelburg in the Netherlands. 

In October 2019 he exhibited five works of art, w11, w12, w13, w22, w29, at the Art Shopping Carrousel du Louvre, Paris, represented by Mona Youssef Gallery.
