ART

Martine Brand’s classic master paintings are made from oil paint on panel. Martine uses the chiaroscuro, lighting technique from the 16th Century as well as the technology of that time. Her subjects are often inspired by strong women wearing the latest fashion or of the catwalk and jewelry from the major fashion designers. Even though Martine graduated successfully from the Fashion Academy as well as the Art Academy, she learnt this classical technique from her grand-mother Loeki Kleijn who has painting in her blood, a family member of the renowned Dutch landscape painter Johannes Kleijn, student of Andreas Schelfhout. Martine’s paintings were shown at the Grand Palais Paris, the Constantine Palace in Saint Petersburg, Art Monaco, an illustrated portrait at Art Dubai with the art curator Sheikha Lulu Al-Sabah, at the Pierre Cardin Museum, the Arts Décoratifs Le Louvre, Art Cologne, Fine Art Cologne, Art Rai, Art Rotterdam, Pan Amsterdam, Luxury fair Amsterdam, Art Miami, Contemporary Art Fair North Sea Jazz Singer Museum Laren.
