The Flicks Community Movie House
How do you paint the most familiar faces of Hollywood? You might have seen these faces over a thousand times in your life!
Dutch artist Peter Klashorst took on the challenge and painted the famous workers from the silver screen in his own remarkable way.
Klashorst specializes in painting and photographing women. In 2000, in primarily Muslim Senegal, his art caused him to end up in custody of the police for some weeks. He was suspected of taking advantage of inciting debauchery, and the production of obscene pictures, because he had painted local women in the nude. By bribing officials, he managed to buy his freedom, and he sneaked into Gambia to flee the Africa. Klashorst now lives and works in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
All paintings will be exhibited at The Flicks Community Movie House on #39b, Street 95, from Saturday March 30, 2013, with an opening party starting at 6pm. Mr Klashorst will be present to explain the art and explain his intentions.
