On Sunday the 24th of september Tom Kraanen (27) opens his upcoming solo-exhibition at Hotel de Goudfazant in Amsterdam Noord. His previous exhibitions (Roest, Canvas, de Basis and more) were characterised by his recognisable surrealistic portraits and characters that were in a thoughtful relation to their nature and environment. For his upcoming exhibition Kraanen explores the differences (and mostly similarities) between inspiration, re-appropriation and plagiarism. The result is bigger, more challenging works with a vibrant and diverse colour palette.
Besides creating his own work Kraanen has also been commissioned by Diesel, Vogue, Supperclub Amsterdam and others to provide his recognisable style to their brand or product.
The exhibition in Hotel Goudfazant lasts until the 19th of november. For inquiries please contact email@example.com
