Evert Dijkstra was a Dutch painter active in the late 20th century and the early part of this one, up until his death in 2008. He was originally a graphic designer, woodcarver and sculptor, and took up still life in the 1980s.
Apart from that, I know frustratingly little. I haven’t been able to find much mention of him, or any extensive galleries of his work beyond this article on Artodyssey that features a number of his colorful and richly textural still life paintings.
Unfortunately, Artodyssey isn’t forthcoming with their source for the images, and some of them are distorted and others appear over-saturated. I’ve taken the liberty of toning some of them down here (though they’re still quite intense).

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
