Leamington artist to reveal power of emotion

SELF-taught artist Jean-Piere Kunzler is displaying a selection of his oil paintings at the Birmingham Midland Institute until the end of the month.

The Leamington painter has been creating pieces for more than 25 years

His paintings have been well received by Prince Charles, former Primer Minister Gordon Brown, Pope Benedict XVI and Her Majesty The Queen.

Jean-Piere said: “I use portraits, landscapes and what I call dreamscapes, which are visions that come to me. My aim is always to show the feelings of the human existence.

“I believe that if I can show an emotion or atmosphere in a painting and the person who looks at the work can feel this, I have painted well.”

The exhibition After The Rain, runs until Wednesday.
