The painting ‘The weight of the world, the world awaits’. Has been selected from more then 1000 entry’s to be shown at castle Slot Zeist as part of the Dutch Portrait Price (De Nederlandse Portretprijs)! Earlier -in 2017- another work was selected. It is nice to be part of this again and to see the work shown in a great location with other portraits (50 total, paintings and sculptures).

After more then one year, going to several venues in England and Scotland. The ‘Girl without pearl earring’ has returned safely.

The painting was exhibited as part of the BP Portrait award 2019 in the National Portrait Gallery London and Edinburg.

It was a very nice experience to be part of. Thanks to the great model @Faredajohnson, who stated her complexion is ‘the lightest shade of black’.

I will add to this: Vive la difference!

bas nijenhuis intervieuw artist artworksOur next guest (born 1976) is a professional artist living in Groningen, the Netherlands. He creates figurative art, mostly oil paintings. Before this, he studied and worked as a psychologist. Bas’ art allows us to give free rein to our own imagination. His art is capable of enveloping us in a world between what is and what is not. It is becoming entrapped in a moment where you can see how each subtle brushstroke gives more than one story to tell and somehow or another you are a witness to this all. His works of art allows us to step before an entrance that contains an array of tales and each one deserves oneโ€™s attention. In all, his works of art have a certain freedom to them that simply invite you for more.
