Norwegian Kjetil Haaland to exhibit at Piers Feetham Gallery London

The Norwegian artist Kjetil Haaland is to exhibit at the Piers Feetham Gallery in Fulham, London from the 29th April to 11th May 2013, after successfully exhibiting his paintings in Norway, Italy, Germany, Holland, England, USA and Monaco.
The Italian newspaper Il Tempo, described Haaland’s style as “Details as an Inspiration”.
Among Haaland’s latest paintings, inspiration is drawn from the architecture of the Mediterranean and of European cities and the history of sports. When it comes to the city pictures the different building facades are given special attention, often seen as reflections of the windows of the stores. Over the past years he has concentrated on reflections from areas of London.
