Alberto De Flavis is a self-taught oil artist based in Amsterdam. The artist has a passion for contemporary realism and old masters, and focuses on still lives in his artworks. De Flavis aims to give a unique vision and interpretation of everyday subjects through the use of light and brushstrokes. With oil painting he finds a way to express his thoughts and emotions.

As a self-taught painter and tattoo artist based in Amsterdam, Wise Kid has a passion for graffiti, hiphop culture, and Dutch old masters. He aims to create a mysterious and surreal atmosphere in his work. The artist has a career in both canvas and skin, and has opened two studios in Amsterdam: the ‚Wise Kid tattoo & gallery‘ founded in 2012, and ‚Black Rose‘ founded in 2016.

This exclusive duo exhibition ‚Seven „DAM“ Years‘ is the result of seven years of friendship between the two artists. Seven years of learning the craft, seven years living in Amsterdam. The artists showcase their experiences, stories & emotions through their artworks. We invite you to join De Flavis and Wise on their journey.

SIDNEY WAERTS (1976)

EXHIBITION DATES
4 November – 10 January

OPENING EVENT
4 NOVEMBER | 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM | No rsvp needed

The Ambassade Hotel and gallery curator Chinny Bond invite you to “FALL”, an exhibition of works by Sidney Waerts (SIT).

„The work of Dutch artist SIT is inevitably characterized by a feeling of discomfort: his paintings and sculptures show the moment when beauty loses its raison d’être, and presents its darkest side. Behind his figurative images lies a disturbing analysis of our times.

SIT demonstrates artificial characters, human beings and animals that remind us of the banality of everyday life, of our obsession with appearance, look and materia-lism. These characters are the victims of our visual and fast society, the technology of the visible – where human vanity stands in the way of a truly ethical life. By using black and white, SIT creates sober and melancholic images, as if man – while endlessly believing in progression – has lost something on the way. But on the other hand he displays a maximum of effects: the rough textures and fast strokes look dramatic and seductive, the settings are theatrical and grotesque.

This ambiguity – between the temptation of beauty and our constant urge to abuse her – is the driving force behind SIT’s work.“

Hyland Mather

20 May – 25 July

The Ambassade Hotel and art gallery curator Chinny Bond invite you to “IN THE DISTANCE”, an exhibition of works by Hyland Mather. 

Primarily in my work I’m interested in balance. Aesthetic balance, conceptual balance, physical balance. Like many other artists I have several ongoing bodies of work. I am an assemblage artist working on my ‚Lost Object‘ and ‚Modus Volito‘ series of sculptures and installations created from reclaimed or ‚lost‘ materials.

I am also a painter of geometric abstract works, currently creating ‚Linea Pictura‘ paintings which incorporate stretched taut string over canvas. As a muralist, I have several ongoing bodies of work including my text based ‚Emblematum‘ series which also appear as collage works, and ‚Acervos‘ paintings which are stacked geometry paintings.

EUGÈNE BRANDS

9 April – 30 April

The Ambassade Hotel and Eugénie Brands invite you for the exhibition of a large selection of gouaches by Eugène Brands.

A painting has to come into being. I don’t create it. I am an antenna. The form is not predetermined or contemplated. I begin by painting thin areas of color or observing what is happening with the paint and then I act on that. The creation of a painting is an almost autonomous event. It requires a medium. That is the painter.
