Vertical Gallery presents Collin van der Sluijs “No Concessions”. In his second solo exhibition at the gallery, the artist will feature an all new collection of large scale paintings and smaller drawings. The exhibition runs June 2 – 23, with an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, June 2nd, 6:00-10:00pm.

Van der Sluijs is a renowned painter and illustrator who lives and works in Maastricht, The Netherlands. He started writing graffiti at the age of eleven, and when he was twelve he began his studies at the professional painting college in Goes. He spent the next eight years studying various art disciplines in different schools across the Netherlands and graduated from the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Breda in 2004 with a Master’s degree in fine art.

Collin translates his personal pleasures and struggles in daily life into his own visual language. He is widely recognized for his extraordinary dream-like depictions of everyday stories that question our personal lives, as well as society at large. Demonstrating an exquisite talent for texture, he uses drips, crude white lines, spray paint and collage. His work has been described as Street Art executed in a style that was half Monet, half Basquiat-like, with a highly saturated gritty urban color palette.

Collin’s exceptional work has been published in magazines and books, and shown in galleries across the world—in The Netherlands, Germany, USA, France, England, Belgium, Italy, United Kingdom, and Spain. Collin’s first USA solo exhibition at Vertical in May 2016 sold-out, and has seen the demand for his murals and gallery work increase worldwide.
