Peter de Graaff (1961) is a real artist and liked to experiment with his works. The interior plays an important part in his paintings. The starting point is often a photo of historic interiors that are used as a first draft. Layer by layer, he builds his painting so that the view from one layer to the other remains visible. The painterly interventions are equally diverse, playfull and and light-hearted. He exposed at Museum Voorlinden, Berger in Amsterdam (NL), Lecoutre in Knokke (B), Lorre , Dendermonde (B), Franken in Parijs & Reims (F) among others. This giant work is ‘the library of mister Coconut’. It fills the room with inspiration and imagination.
