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 colours. 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."
NY DAILY NEWS:
"Stunning works of art by punching the canvas."
