Tal R

Tal R is known as one of the most active and productive artists of his time. He works in a broad range of media and techniques, producing paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and textiles with an energetic, exuberant and colourful visual language. He takes inspiration for his figurative and abstract works from high and low culture. His motifs are easily described, but their meaning, like dreams, remains mysterious.

Autumn 2017, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s main exhibition galleries will be filled with the impressive oeuvre of the Danish artist Tal R, recognised as one of the most active and productive artists of our time. His sources of inspiration are divergent. Tal R is also inspired by styles of other artists like Picasso, Dumas and Picabia. The other way around Tal R's work is internationally a point of reference for many comtemporary artists.
