EXPO: ART BY CASH, Brussels July 2020

The work of Brussels-based artist Carl Anders Sven Hultin - "CASH" - is currently on display in his home town once again.

This is a young man who single-handedly is able to define the words “cosmopolitan” and “creativity”, and whose has been exhibited in Venice, London and Paris, and who counts amongst his subjects the President of Nigeria, Goodluck Johnson.

Amongst his accolades CASH was the winner of the 2016 European Contest, sponsored by the Mission of China to the EU.

I first paid attention, some time ago, to his Pop Art style images of Ray Charles: however, the style of some of the work on show at his current expo gives something of a nod towards to Pointillism a style that emerged from French Impressionism in the late 19th century.

His subjects here are far more contemporary, featuring predominantly black icons such as Muhammad Ali, Pele, Michael Jackson, Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, and, much to my own delight, the incomparable Etta James.

The paintings which went on display on June 30th, can be viewed throughout July at the well-known Congolese restaurant Inzia, at Rue de la Paix 37, 1050 Ixelles.

You shouldn't be too surprised if I do something different from what you discovered me through, an artist likes to recycle themself.
