Ship of Fools

‘Our gallery is a place to find art that makes you smile, art that has a nice set of balls, is straight forward and honest’. We tonen kunst waar we in geloven, niet alleen namen die je kent, maar juist ook nieuwe. Ze komen uit allerlei hoeken en gaten, uit allerlei landen.

De naam Ship of Fools komt van een schilderij van Jeroen Bosch, de eerste echte character designer. Het schilderij toont een schip vol dwazen die hun leven verspillen door te gokken, drinken, flirten, eten, enz. in plaats van leven op een verantwoorde manieren.

We hebben besloten na 3 fantastisch jaren om het even rustig aan te doen. Zie het als een sabbatical. We komen zeker terug!Ship of Fools exhibitions:
