Peter Riezebos - Considering the American dre
Thursday 14th of September 2017 6:30pm - 8:30pm
We will kick off the season artistically. Together with the talented young Dutch artist Peter Riezebos we invite you for an exclusive TNCART reception and explanatory talk in Peter’s temporary studio and gallery at Orchard Street in the Lower East Side.
Peter Riezebos (1980) is a Shanghai-based artist from the Netherlands. His creative work encompasses drawings and paintings, primarily in abstract, figurative and neo- expressionism traditions. Peter Riezebos is an autodidact. His creative ability emerged early in life and originated from a strong desire to express his emotions and experiences visually.
As a teenager, Peter was a multiple school dropout. But his educational trajectory changed. In his bestseller autobiographical book ' Van mavo tot Harvard', he tells his life story from school dropout and clinical debacle to excellent multidisciplinary (Harvard) student. And at the moment Peter is not only pursuing a Educational Technology PhD in Shanghai, he is also one of the most successful and bestselling professional artists in China. In November 2016 Peter was awarded the ‘Rising Star-award’ in China.
From July until the end of September Peter Riezebos is residing in New York to work on his first New York solo show - ‘Considering the American Dream’. The work consist of eight paintings, reflecting his personal affection towards the American Dream. Given his personal affinity with New York, as well as the (continued) significance of the city in the art world, showcasing his art in New York is a personal dream. A dream of America. The American Dream.
On Thursday September 14, Peter and TNC invite you for a unique and exclusive event in Peter’s temporary studio/gallery. Peter will talk about his interesting and inspiring life story, his art and the art world in China, Europe and America. But above all, we invite you to raise the glass to Peter’s American Dream and to the start of the TNC fall season!
