Debut Exhibition by Rinus van Hall
24 November - 20 January
KYAS ART SALON is very excited to present Rinus van Hall's first exhibition.
Rinus strives after a life as an autonomous artist and has been painting fervently over the last 3 years. His main focus is painting portraits, looking for the hidden emotions in his subjects. In a short period of time he has developed a strong eye for detail and texture. Inspired and convinced by the importance of the classical painting, Rinus is teaching himself old techniques through making countless studies. In his first solo exhibition free work will be shown of this young descendant of a well- known artist-family. The development arch will take more leaps as the exhibition progresses. The results will be shown during the finissage on 20 January 2018.
Last week Rinus van Hall was commissioned by the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem to solve a big problem. The top-piece for their new exhibition The Art of Laughter, couldn't make it in time for the opening on 10 November. They asked Rinus to make a copy in two days. The result is hanging proudly in the museum, together with a monitor showing the production process.
A contemporary approach to his classical style can be found in the use of live streaming on the platform twitch.tv, a platform built for the online game-community, but more and more used by creatives to showcase their talents live. Here he broadcasts as the phantompainter, giving his followers the opportunity to spectate his classical studies of old masters. On 26 November there will be a Salon Fraîche where he will be interviewed about his work. There will also be the chance to commission him for a work to be painted. From 27 November on you are more than welcome to visit Rinus at the gallery by appointment. You can also see him work live on twitch.tv during his residency at KYAS ART SALON.
Rinus van Hall feels unleashed and is happy to show you where his development will lead to.
