Brigette Bardot - 'Sixties'
ALL PAINTINGS COPYRIGHTED BY HAYO SOL
“The image of Art“
Born a Capricorn on January 18th, HAYO SOL developed an artistic interest from an early age on.
During his early twenties he went to the Amsterdam School of Arts and mainly focused on developing his crafts as an abstract painter. He was influenced by PopArt and got very inspired to create his own, personal form of PopArt after living in New York.
In 2003 and 2004 he studied arts and PopArt-techniques in The Big Apple and was very much influenced by all the different kinds of PopArt and PopArt-artists in the city.
Since HAYO wanted to create original and “new” Pop Art, it took him many months to develop his own unique, three dimensional, technique that makes his work stand out from the contemporary Pop Art available today.
Although HAYO is also an abstract painter, he mainly focuses on creating original PopArt work.
For his “Objets d’ Art”, HAYO uses the images of true legends of the entertainment world and royalty as he wants to transfer this magical world into art and on to the canvas. In that way it would be captured for ever and could be experienced wherever the art piece is placed.
HAYO SOL’s PopArt has worldwide many famous admirers like Prince Albert of Monaco and actress Denise Richards.
Each artwork is unique and no two pieces are alike. Although they have a limited edition each piece still stands out as an original and is an Artist Proof. No mass production of the same thing here! Each art piece is hand embellished with acrylic and metal paint and original Swarovski crystals. In a special limited series 24 krt. Gold leaf or 1 krt. diamond powder, provided by world famous Gassan Diamonds, is added to the metal paint. Each artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist himself. Besides editions from his collection, HAYO also takes on commission work for special “one of a kind” pieces.
HAYO SOL takes Pop Art, that was so greatly influenced by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein in the last century, into the next century and millennium.
