THE ERA BEFORE THE VINTAGE PORTRAITS

Peter Engels had his first solo exhibition in 1984 and he sold nearly every painting he made. Since then, for more than 30 years, he had exhibitions all over the world. He has paintings hanging in every continent. Some years he had up to 8 exhibitions. He sold over 600 paintings. In 2005 exhibiting came abruptly to an end when in spring his father died. After 30 years of painting everything including landscape painting, Peter Engels changed to the most difficult discipline in art: portrait painting. Now he goes for quality. Quality in his work and quality in the kind of exhibitions. High quality is his fierce reaction against abstract art which he says: “Contemporary artists, critics and so-called art professionals are very often hiding their lack of time, knowhow and knowledge. They are hiding and blurring their lack of technique and style behind incompetent abstract visuals with pseudo philosophic explanations. Tempted by the easy way, art is no longer an ‘art’. It is time for an ‘Art Revolution’. Back to beauty, back to value, back to technique, back to quality. The pendulum has reached the dark suburbs of art and is bound to turn back to its centre.”
