In his oil paintings and still lifes Tjalf Sparnaay makes us see the ordinary, mundane things that are dear to us in a different light. His technique reflects that of the 17th century Dutch masters, but his subjects are very contemporary and include foodstuffs and objects that are quintessentially Dutch or American.
Tjalf Sparnaay has been influenced by the work of Vermeer, Rembrandt, Ralph Goings and Charles Bell. He is internationally considered to be one of the most important contemporary painters working in a style called Mega Realism, part of the contemporary art movement of Hyper Realism. His paintings and limited-edition prints continue to grow in popularity with art collectors and art enthusiasts.
Salome Art Venture & master print house Re-Art are Tjalf Sparnaay’s official partners for his limited-edition prints and giclees. We are proud to be able to present here his paintings, art prints and giclees.
