During his early twenties HAYO SOL went to the Amsterdam School of Arts and mainly focused on developing his crafts as an abstract painter. He was influenced by PopArt and got inspired to create his own, personal, PopArt while living in New York where, in 2003 and 2004, he studied arts and PopArt-techniques. Since HAYO wanted to create original and “new” Pop Art, it took him many years to develop his own unique, three dimensional, technique that makes his work truly stand out from the contemporary Pop Art available today. Although also an abstract painter, he now mainly focuses on creating original PopArt work with great, worldwide, succes. For his “Objets d’ Art”, HAYO uses the images of true icons of the entertainment world, royalty, fashion and politics, as he wants to transfer these timeless legends into art and on to the canvas. HAYO SOL’s PopArt is a worldwide success and he is proud to have many famous admirers like Prince Albert of Monaco, French president Sarkozy and actress Denise Richards. Each artwork is unique and no two pieces are alike. Although they have a limited edition, each piece still stands out as an original and is an Artist Proof. Every PopArt painting with silkscreened skin, is hand painted with acrylic and metal paint and hand embellished with original Swarovski crystals. In a special limited series, 24 krt. Gold leaf or 1 krt. diamond powder, provided by world famous Gassan Diamonds, is added to the metal paint. HAYO SOL takes Pop Art, that was so greatly influenced by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein in the last century, into the next century and makes it his own.
