My name is Klaas Lageweg (1978). As a visual artist, I create murals and paintings. Art is my means to function autonomously in this society. Creating and developing causes me to experience conflict, euphoria, disappointment and pride. In other words: paint keeps me going.
I follow my instincts and intuition – in doing so, I get to turn my ideas into reality. My focus is always on the end result. As I find inspiration in my day-to-day environment, my work generally contains an observational outlook. In combining seemingly opposing forms, such as realism, pixel art and abstractions, I am always pushing the boundaries.
Through my work, I am seen for who I truly am, which is what any human being craves.
Works of mine can be found in Sweden, Greece, England, France, Switzerland, the United States, China, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands.
I have done custom works for Dutch broadcaster BNN, Netflix, Grolsch, University Medical Centre Groningen (UMCG), Dutch Railways (NS), Rabobank, Provinciehuis Leeuwarden, Abe Lenstra Stadion (football stadium), housing corporations and countless city councils and private clients.
My work has been exhibited at the 2010 World Expo (Shangai), Artcurial (Paris), Toss Gallery (Thessaloniki), Wallery (Stockholm), the Frysian Museum and the Original Dampkring Gallery (Amsterdam). It has also been published in a variety of sources, among other in the art book “Mural Art”.
I’ve been nominated for the Dutch Street Art Awards and won the third place (audience choice) at the exhibition “Beeld van Beatrix” at Paleis Het Loo.
On my website you’ll find my exclusive paintings for sale, each made with a lot of love. Of course, it’s also possible to acquire a custom painting. Please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss the possibilities.
As a muralist my goal is always to create something unique. Therefore, in each situation, I approach the surroundings and client’s wishes with an open mind.
