“The aesthetician, a very ugly man, speaks about beauty in a bleak room.”

-Bas van Wieringen

On: Beauty



Bas van Wieringen is an Amsterdam based visual artist. Through small interventions Bas tries to shift reality into surreal situations, creating a new perspective on everyday objects. He wants to encourage the viewer to observe, take a closer look at reality, and sharpen perception to shine new light on the things we are familiar with.

His work has been exhibited in The Netherlands and abroad, including de Hallen/Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem (NL), Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam (NL), Fringe Arts Festival, Bath (UK), and Camden Arts Centre, London (UK).
