Bart van Polanen Petel
Tilburg, Noord Brabant, Netherlands
"His abstract paintings are wild, colorful and full of motion...Spectacular."
"Violence and art can go hand in hand, as evidenced by Bart van Polanen Petel."
"Like a regular painter knows his technique, canvas, paint and brush, Petel knows how the paint reacts to certain punches, and the interaction of colors....his work is a hit in the art world."
LOST AT E MINOR:
"Frankly we think this is great, each of Bart’s canvases has the added value of having literally suffered a double dose of his physical and creative expression, having to withstand dozens of punches, each one adding the equivalent of a brush stroke."
"The artist also known as "Muhammad Dali" combined his two passions...when he strapped a series of canvases to a heavy bag and quite literally painted with his fists."
