Behind the Seen
BARBARA VAN DEN BERG
In the series, Behind the Seen, girls are presented in exaggerated costume to emphasize femininity.
The name of the series is an appropriation of the theatrical idiom, ‘behind the scene’. For the artist, this references to what is behind the mere visible and behind the façade.
Employing both Pop and contemporary elements, she uses embellishments of puffed sleeves, large collars and crinoline dresses to emphasize the enduring power of female.
Her portrait compositions take from Old Master paintings and put in a dreamy, playful atmosphere.

ART IS LOADED WITH EMOTIONS
Weather it is visual arts, music or poetry, there is no need to explain in detail that all artists have created some of their best works when they were in love!
It is a feeling that moved them and boosted the creative drive, resulting in beautiful and powerful artworks.
So this is our major argument and we think there is no better gift for a each day.
"BACK AND FORTH"
Like most people, we found out about Mr Brainwash through the Banksy-directed documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop.
It tells the beautiful story of Thierry Guetta, a French man obsessed with street art, who made the segue into producing art himself under the pseudonym Mr Brainwash.
