Jean-Paul Marsman is one of the most remarkable painters of this moment. His work bought by collectors, galleries, museums and businesses.
The city of New York is one of his largest sources of inspiration, which is why he visits this city frequently. His work can also be admired in New York on a regular basis.
Full of passion, life is intense. All sort of things are happening everywhere. People live their life on more levels than ever before. Those contrast can also be found in Marsman paintings, they come alive in his work. The bright, strong colours and the recognizable shapers are spectacular, cartoonesque and grotesque. The image is an adventure, passionate and full. A positive snigger in a chaotic society.
Does his work contain a message? Of course, but most of all a challenge to look at the way in which we live, from his smiling perspective. A dialogue with the viewer. Marsman sets the tone and the viewer fills in his or her story.
A conversation or a discussion.
