About Mariana:
“The medium of printmaking enables me to explore the textures and shapes of found objects and transfer them directly into paper. Using rust to represent the process of decay, each piece evolves through disintegration, acting as an antidote to the materialism of modern industrial life.”

About Jasmine:
“Jasmine is a 17 year old artist and singer-songwriter (composing and accompanying herself on the piano) based in Amsterdam. As an artist, she works primarily with oil paints; texture, form and colour playing very important roles in her work. In both her music and her art, she draws inspiration from herself and the environment around her – working primarily with themes related to the human condition (thus the many portraits and of usage human anatomy in her art)”

Home Of Art!

On December 23, 2014, my partner and I opened our Pop Up Art Gallery Home Of Art in the Museum District of Amsterdam, this is the reason I haven’t been blogging much lately.

 

What’s new?
After these hectic, but inspiring months, we have decided that Home Of Art will become a permanent Art Gallery in Amsterdam, something I could not have imagined a year or even some months ago!

 

What do we (aim to) do?

  • Home Of Art is an Art Gallery in the Museum District of Amsterdam.
  • Home Of Art is a non for profit organisation and aims to present and promote talented artists.
  • Home Of Art offers a platform for artists that create diverse art forms in the broadest sense possible.
  • Home Of Art combines art with a cozy atmoshphere and unique cultural events such as intimate concerts.

 

 

 

A request: 
If there’s anyone that could/ would voluntarily help us out with our website, please contact me!
 It’s online (http://www.homeofart.org ), but I need help with adding content & making it look good, so until now we have mostly been communicating through Facebook; https://www.facebook.com/HomeOfArtAmsterdam (Give us a LIKE! We need them.), most of our artworks and an impression of the cultural events we have hosted are there.

 

Last but not least;
If you’re in Amsterdam, please do pay us a visit! We sell art for every budget and we are pleased to show you around.

Home Of Art had the honour to host Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra’s 1st (and 2nd!) concert in Amsterdam on June 1 (and 2) 2015. 

Barcelona Gigpy Klezmer Orchestra (BGKO) has been thrilling audiences all over Europe with their soulful, vibrant show of traditional and popular Balkan, Gipsy and Jewish music from Eastern Europe. BGKO is an international ensemble based in Barcelona, well-known for exploring musical roots, creating and performing with outstanding personality.

BGKO is composed of six musicians from around the world. Originally from Serbia, Italy, France, Spain, Greece and India, BGKO’s musicians connected in Barcelona over their passion for Balkan music with their own special perspective. Their particular style comes from klezmer music, gipsy Jazz and Romani music as well as from their exploration of forgotten music styles, specific timbres and flavours from regions around Eastern Europe. BGKO has also been inspired by Barcelona’s eclectic music scene, from Latin-American melodies, traditional Catalan and Middle Eastern music to electrifying Jazz and Rockabilly.

BGKO is:
Robindro Nikolic- Clarinet, Serbia/India
Mattia Schirosa- Accordeon, Italy
Julien Chanal- Guitar, France
Ivan Kovacevic- Double Bass, Serbia
Stelios Togias- Percussion, Greece
Sandra Sangiao- Voice, Catalunya

Another side of the exhibition;
Home Of Art proudly presents Kariatides Duo with Elliot Simpson, guitar and Nick Thess at percussions.

Can you imagine a gallery where you can spend your free time, read a book, listen to unique live music, enjoy your beer with friends, and still being surrounded by art and discover new aspects of our world?!

HOME OF ART is all this, and together with Kariatides Duo we decided to turn our exhibition into a musical surrealistic travel, through the colours, the ideas and the sounds that have inspired some of our main artists.

Special thanks to composers Theofilos Lamprianidis and Fanis Zachopoulos who have composed the music especially for this event.

If you want to experience a totally new “art-tour” you’re welcome to come on Sunday 29 March at 17.00 at Home of Art in Amsterdam!
Entrance is 3 euros.
