Background

Art in Residence is het platform van de Nederlands-Keniaanse beeldend kunstenaar Kay Sleking. Zijn schilderijen combineren interieur design met het gevoel van ruimte en levensplezier.

The sea and the dynamics of the birds are sources of inspiration for his Birdies & Sea Sonnets. Funky Abstract & Smooth Portret zijn gebaseerd op swing, humor en joie de vivre.

Over the years, Kay Sleking has developed as a graphic designer, musician, orchestra leader, teacher and creative director. In recent years, the focus has mainly been on visual art, which does not alter the fact that he can still be seen and heard as a musician. His performance during the Prinsengracht concert 2020, that particular year in the courtyard of Hotel Pulitzer and broadcast live, is a good example of this.

De schilderijen op Art in Residence zijn dagelijks te bekijken in het atelier van Kay Sleking in Amsterdam. Zijn werk wordt o.a. tentoongesteld bij Galerie Sonia Monti in Parijs.
