NEO POP ART

Selwyn Senatori er en populær neo-popartkunstner fra Nederland. Han er halvt italiensk og maler det som han setter pris på i livet, det gode liv, La Dolce Vita. Det være seg god mat og vin, Italia, musikk, filmer, damer og design. Med sine fargesprakende malerier uttrykker han sin italienske bakgrunn. Den unike og moderne stilen hans er blitt en stor internasjonal suksess. På grunn av et stort og variert klientell og mange utstillinger er motivkretsen både stor og omfangsrik. Han jobber hovedsakelig med akryl på lerret, men benytter også kritt, blyant og spraymaling.

It’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle!

Selwyn makes art that generates instant happiness. He draws inspiration from la Dolce Vita; Art crowded with Italian scoundrels, Amsterdam gangsters, good food and drinks, Italy, music, movies, women, design, expensive cars and parties. Take a closer look, however, and you will see a deeper layer, another side of the hedonist, the bon vivant. Everything appears on the canvas for a reason, every word or object has it’s own story. With his motto ‘It’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle’, he communicates his style not only through his art, but also throughout his way of living.

Selwyn’s art work is an ode to life, parties, woman, fashion, good food and sexuality. 

What you see is not imagined, it’s real. 

That’s why his work is celebrated internationally and embrased by celebs like Paris Hilton, Pharell Williams, Douzen Kroes, Armin van Buuren and Kate Winslet.

His unique, fresh style is celebrated internationally, as his colorful paintings tell the story of his Italian background. Senatori works in acrylic paint on canvas or linen with experimentation in chalk, pencils and spray cans. Besides using a canvas he draws and paints on almost anything he could lay his hands on. From tablecloths during dinner to women, cars, vespa’s, champagne bottles, bycicles and even entire busses. Senatori is the ambassador of living the good life, based in Amsterdam where he lives and works. Besides the Netherlands his art work is celebrated internationally with exhibitions across the globe, from New York to Dubai, Moscow to Hong Kong, Paris and Oslo.
