Rep Ringel Art is a contemporary, international art gallery based in The Netherlands. The gallery is committed to building careers of emerging and established contemporary artists.
Born and grew up in The Netherlands, coming from an artistic family. Mother a graduated fashion designer, father a poet. In his early years you could find him in the recordstores shopping for great new original music that he could play as a deejay. Enjoying people dancing and having a great time was his favorite way of living. After several years of working as a deejay Rep changed to work in the graphic design. He started his own awarded design company called ringel design (ringeldesign.nl). He enjoyed working for beautiful companies and brands. A lot of his customers were from the fashion and cosmetic industry. Living a life under influence of music, fashion and design brought him a lot of inspiration. Creativity to make new things. That’s why he started painting. The paintings are large abstract, raw, unpolished images, driven by music, which is naturally for him. During the process of painting one song is playing loud, over and over again. Rep analysis all the layers and the atmosphere of the music, and translates this to the large canvas using the paint in an unorthodox way. Earth tones, touches of metallics and 24K golden elements are mostly the ingredients in which he expresses his feelings. The paintings are named after the inspirators, the musicians or their songs. Once a painting is finished, a chip with all kinds of information about the painting including the Certificate of Authenticity is embedded in a special wax seal on the canvas. Then a black frame is added to complete the painting. From day one all the paintings have been photographed by Rep to produce special limited hardcover books meant for the buyers of the painting. So, every art buyer has a book with his own work in print. Next to the photography for the books Rep also also captures details of the paintings in an alienated way. These images become new works of art and are presented as the ‘Silence’ - and Silence Gold’ series. The limited photographs in the “Silence’ series are all encapsulated behind Museum Glass, the images of the ‘Silence Gold’ series are large framed works printed on matt fine art paper and are the most exclusive ones. Rep combines all his life experiences and -disciplines for his projects and concepts. Music, painting, photography, graphic- and design are all involved in the process of making his art. This makes him complete. Rep’s work has been seen already on fairs, exhibitions and shows all over the world.
