Menno Pasveer (1998) graduated this summer as a painter from the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. His work is often autobiographical, but also about painting in general. His painting is not limited by one style and moves just as easily from hyperrealism to abstract expressionism. Within one painting, he often combines different styles at the same time. One thing is definitely constant through his work: his love for painting.

An Ode to the Floor Cleaning Industry
I’ve been working as a floor cleaner since the age of fifteen. In addition to it being hard labor, it is unseen labor – have you ever noticed someone polishing a floor before? ”An Ode to the Floor Cleaning Industry” is a series of six paintings that visualize the beauty of hard labor, chemical products and machinery. Besides the subject matter, my work aims to focus on formal qualities of painting. Such as, the communication between the different energies in one canvas. For example, one being transparent, another opaque, another very sharp, and another out of focus.
