Peter Engels had his first solo exhibition in 1984 where he sold nearly every painting he made. Since then, for more than 35 years, he had exhibitions all over the world. He has paintings hanging in every continent. Some years he had up to 8 exhibitions. He sold over 600 paintings. In 2005 exhibiting came abruptly to an end when in spring his father died. After many years of painting the most diverse subjects including landscapes, Peter Engels changed to the most difficult discipline in art: portrait painting. Now he goes for quality. Quality in his work and quality in the kind of exhibitions. High quality is his fierce reaction against abstract art which he says: “Contemporary artists, critics and art professionals are very often hiding their lack of time, knowhow, technique and style behind incompetent abstract visuals. They explain their ‘art’ with pseudo philosophic stories.  Tempted by the easy way, art is no longer an ‘art’. It is time for an ‘Art Revolution’. Back to beauty, back to value, back to technique, back to quality. The pendulum has reached the dark suburbs of art and is bound to turn back to its centre.” VIDEO Vintage painted portraits by artist Peter Engels
