Focus is a new series of emails from LANGart in which we put the spotlight on one of the gallery’s artists. In the current era, in which we have had to significantly reduce personal contact, it seemed a good idea to make the person behind the art more visible. Next up in this serie is Julius Stibbe.
As you might know we currently have a solo show with Julius Stibbe at the location of our colleague Roger Katwijk (Prinsengracht 737). Due to the succes we have decided to extend the exhibition and we have added new available works which were in the Centraal Museum (Utrecht) exhibition. The exhibition “Met de Tijd” wordt verlengd tot en met 22 mei 2021.
We have to be honest, Julius Stibbe was recommended to us by an artist. We immediately took action and asked for a studio visit. The works looked great on the internet but when we arrived at his studio we were blown away by this young, talented, friendly and humble artist’s powerful and unique work. We agreed to make a solo exhibition April 2020. Due to the pandemic we postponed the exhibition.
At a very young age Julius Stibbe graduated from the HKU and was invited to the “Best of Graduates” exhibition at Gallerie Ron Mandos. We praise the fact that Julius Stibbe took his time and decided to explore and develop his own signature for a few years by working on a daily basis in his studio.
