Nanne Jan Balyon

(Dutch)

 

     Born in the city of The Hague, The Netherlands on May 13th1960, Nanne is part of a very artistic and creative family, and has been drawing and painting from very early childhood.  At the age of sixteen, encouraged to become a professional painter, he started taking painting lessons from his older brother André. Their younger brother Simon is also a professional landscape painter.

 

     Nanne Balyon is one of the most motivating artists currently working in the Netherlands. Continuously looking for new ways of image making, fascinated with canvas structures and different ways to transform Nature on a two-dimensional surface.

 

     His work will conjure up a broad range of sensations to the viewer, consequently increasing and expanding his collection of Artwork which can be found in many prominent collections and homes around the world. Trough his use of color and space Nanne achieves an extraordinary degree of expressiveness and by following the examples of Rembrandt van Rijn and Diego Velasquez he creates ethereal works which captures and stimulates the imagination.

 

     Through his work, Nanne Balyon explores ways of communicating as to how it feels to be vivacious and alive, using relationship between colors and forms in order to evoke an emotional response. Nanne’s paintings all have figurative starting points, mostly from his experiences and the imagery collected from traveling abroad. They are gradually abstracted through a process of implementation and his emotional response and inspiration.

 

     Recently, Nanne is in the process of making a series of artworks created and inspired by his recent exhibition in, and visit to the city of Guangzhou, China.

 

His recent paintings are showing Chinese people crossing the streets in Guangzhou. The ‘modern’ backgrounds are visualizing the vastly changing times in China, in which a great number of (older) people  are walking around as in shock, while the younger generation seems to be in approval  of the 'rapidly' changing of times.

 

     Nanne Balyon’s work is clearly influenced by impressionism in the European tradition.
