Artist Feature - Hans Paus Jul 23 2018
We're so happy to announce that we have just signed a very talented artist, Hans Paus! Originally from the Netherlands, Hans is a modern artist, who works traditionally to create his vibrant landscape paintings. He is constantly inspired by his travels and music, which play a key factor in this work. His use of colour, expressive brush strokes and abstract flare make him a fantastic artist for wall art, posters and prints, as well as greeting cards design.
"The self-taught Dutch artist Hans Paus (1959) is a passionate modern artist, born and still living in the small village “Losser” nearby the German border. The ancient landscape of his native soil, the region Twente and coastal landscapes are beside the impressions of his travels, a great source of inspiration. His palette-knife paintings unveil a neo-impressionistic style. He developed a recognisable handwriting in which the principal aim is to catch and intensify atmosphere in light and colour. Hans Paus gets as much as possible out of his themes and gives a contemporary twist to the traditional impressionistic remembrance. Sparkling, vivid colours and efficient light-effects provide a pictorial spectacle. Although well-considered painted in thick layers and in a “wet in wet” technique, the artist succeeds in giving the impression of a smoothly set up painting. During the process the artist strays off the reality gradually but the abstractions are never so far carried through that they cause a break between the original source and the new created image. The art of Hans Paus is characterized by his striving for poetic impressions. Optimism and “lust for life” are keywords in his works. Hans Paus has exhibited in many countries and his original paintings and limited editions are sold all over the world. Music is also a great passion. Listening to other artists but also composing, playing and recording “epic” pieces written by himself."
