Photographer Paul Bellaart’s unique photography exhibition celebrating
the new DENHAM and Montblanc pen comes to X BANK
from November 16, 2018 till January 14, 2019.
DENHAM the Jeanmaker teamed up with the luxury label Montblanc to create a bespoke Meisterstuck pen as part of DENHAM’s 10th anniversary celebrations happening all this year. With this collaboration, they want to celebrate craftsmanship and empower young creatives to push their boundaries.
The launch of the pen is accompanied by a photography exhibition shot by Paul Bellaart that features 10 young Dutch creatives from the realms of design, writing, fashion and tattoo art. In a time when younger generations are more likely to use laptops and mobile phones than pens, these young creatives prefer the traditional art of pen and paper in their artistic processes. The artists include visual artist Alljan Moehamad; fashion designer Tess van Zalinge and Pien Stieglitz; jewellery designer Bibi van der Velden; chef Jaimie van Heije; tattoo artist Jorgos Karidas; artist Kat Klerks; TV host Geraldine Kemper;
film director Bobby Boermans and jeanmaker Jason Denham.
Paul Bellaart is a world-renowned fashion photographer whose work always strongly echoes his Dutch roots. His photography is all about the enjoyment of life in its purest form; it captures the essence of real and naïve beauty. Real people, inspiring places and coincidental circumstances are his trusted friends in the process of making pictures.
X BANK is proud to host Bellaart’s show from November 16, 2018 to January 14, 2019.
