It is one of the oldest galleries in Russia, specialised in the art of Photography. Their scope of interest ranges from early Soviet Constructivist photography (which happens to be a major influence on my work!) to contemporary international photography.
Printed beautifully, 5 works out of the “Urban Tapestry” series are being presented in Moscow. The gallery will also show marvelous work by Rob Woodcox, Naum Granovsky, Vladimir Lagrange and a legend of Soviet photojournalism Arkady Shaikhet with his iconic artwork “Express”, 1939.

Zusammen Let’s Go
May 14 – May 29, 2021
Köpenicker Str. 96 , Berlin
‘Zusammen Let’s Go’ is the title of a group exhibition at BBA Gallery in Berlin, Germany. It is part of ‘New Currents’, a series of exhibitions that features some of the gallery’s newfound artists. The exhibition highlights selections of fresh and exciting positions curated by Emily Dickinson.
I am happy that after > my digital solo exhibition for BBA Gallery last December, this time a physical exhibition is possible once again, together with a range of talented international artists.
Fire Escapism III
Depicted above and part of the exhibition is Fire Escapism III (2020). In this third of my series of New York fire escapes I isolated one section of the original building and by rotating and repeating a new architectural order is created. The series is meant as an uplifting collection to literally escape from the dreary (pandemic) reality into an imaginary world of rhythm, color and creative joy.

In April 2021 an exciting project was finalized in Thousand Oaks, California. For an office building I created two large compositions installed in the main area staircase and in one of the corridors. In this series you can see my compositions and some views of the installation.
The photographic works installed are “MoMA Labyrinth II” and “Sunny Side II”. Both are based on the similarly entitled “MoMA Labyrinth” (photographed at the MoMA in New York) and “Sunny Side” (shot in Rotterdam), available as limited edition prints at Saatchi Art.

Introduction by BBA Gallery
Introducing Paul Brouns with his first online exclusive show with BBA Gallery for Artsy. Brouns found his voice by capturing architecture. The urban landscape proved to be an ideal playground for finding geometrical elements to use in his compositions.
Paul Brouns (1967) is a Dutch photographing artist that lives and works near Amsterdam. Observing the urban world, he is attracted by the abstract, rhythmic poetry of buildings and of façades in particular. He clearly concentrates only on particular elements of architecture, such as the rhythm of windows and the colour of wall surfaces.

This is great news! Today 10 November 2020 it was announced that my photographic work was chosen to be the winning entry for this year’s Colors contest of All About Photo. ‘Afterglow’ (shown above) is the featured winning image. Part of the award is that my portfolio will be featured in the next All About Photography Magazine (now in preparation) and the attractive cash prize of $500.

FMS-Magazine has featured an interview with me. In the article I talk about my work and my creative journey of life.
Paul Brouns is an artist, who is intrigued by the geometry and rhythm in architecture, and uses photography as a medium for creating art. “I am creating a body of work that is offered in limited edition prints, mostly not more than five or eight prints per image in three basic sizes (small, medium and large). I sell these through a couple of galleries in different countries (Holland, the US, India, and South Korea) but also directly at art fairs in Amsterdam, London, New York and Tokyo.”
“My fondness of using my imagination when drawing at home, in time, has evolved into creating new realities out of my photographic material in my studio.”
