CNN Features Gottfried Helnwein “Astonishing photo-realistic portraits you won’t believe were painted by hand”

Gottfried Helnwein-CNN


CNN World Recently featured Gottfried Helnwein on the “Ones to Watch” in an article they titled “Astonishing photo-realistic portraits you won’t believe were painted by hand”. The images you are about to see may shock or confound you. When portraiture looks this realistic, it can be hard to accept that what you see is just paint on a canvas, or ink scratches on a page. Discover nine of the finest artists from around the world who are recreating humans in their art — with strikingly lifelike results. Gottfried Helnwein frequently depicts children in his gigantic, mesmerizing portraits, along with “low culture” icons including Donald Duck, with the loss of childhood innocence as a reoccurring theme.

Truth, Light & Matter – Oct 3rd Annual Exhibit in Toronto Canada

Our Annual exhibition opened on October 3, 2013 and continues until November 23, 2013 with hours and appointments listed under the Contact section.  It’s been an incredible year –at Gallery House we are currently unlike other existing entities in the art world.  We only cater to senior and high end established artists to help grow and foster their work.

Sometimes I feel as if the concept is so new it is difficult to clearly understand what this actually means.  We are different because we ensure constant prominence and exhibition is taking place internationally as Gallery House deliberately partners with commercial galleries, institutions and special projects to exhibit the artists works.  We manage all the nitty gritty details from strategic planning, communication, negotiation, media/reproduction, contracts, appraisal, insurance, shipping, coordination from concept to exhibition to collection of funds and return.  Together with the artists we handle their inventory distribution and ensure rotation of the works of art.  As such, the artist is alleviated from the above and can focus on creating their best works.

The venture was formed after working in the fine art world for over 12 years in institutions, as a consultant, commercial galleries and art fairs.  Fine arts is a passion of mine and Gallery House over the few years has garnered attention from some of the top institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, US and Bristol Arts Museum, England and numerous partnered galleries in over 8 countries and growing.

Gallery House means we value our artists and our passion inspries us to bring you the best work while insuring the integrity of the artists rights are intact.

Thank you for believing and supporting us.

Gottfried Helnwein in LA Studio

Gottfried Helnwein Studio

This past week we were lucky enough to spend some time with Gottfried and Renate Helnwien in there studio. It was something to go through each work with him and get a better understanding of his process and the work that he does. With such a busy schedule Gottfried was kind enough to spend the whole day with myself and introduce me to the rest of his family.

Gottfried & Renate Helnwein
