Invitation to Launch: Koningen ART in Australia
Preview- Thursday 1st June from 4-7pm
Saturday 3rd June and Sunday 4th June 11am-4pm
WHERE: Living studio Gallery 36 Urwin St, Yarraville.
The relocation from Brugge is complete! Australian artist Svein Koningen and his wife and muse Dianne have returned to Melbourne.
After 12 years living and working in the heart of exquisite medieval Bruges, Belgium, their hearts led the journey home.
They succumbed to the siren call of family, friends, open spaces, huge sky and brilliant light of Australia, packed up their home and 150 paintings, and are now thriving in the village-style community of Yarraville.
Come and join an intimate gathering of friends and art lovers to celebrate their return to Australia, and accept an invitation to be part of their community of the future.
Catch up with the artist, raise a glass, and view the evolution of Svein’s evocative, sensuous and bold abstract work, with the influence of the light, textures and environment of his European experiences.
You will leave with a little taste of Koningen in your hand!
Since Svein reconnected with his first first professional love, as a full time artist 22 years ago, his collectors have had the unique experience of the Koningen ‘living gallery’. The art is in situ in their home, where the art is not removed from the artist, but where the viewer feels a part of the Koningen lifestyle that is inextricably linked to the art.
Please feel free to invite other art lovers to this event
