The Biennale of Chianciano is an opportunity to see the artworks of talented artists that are selected from all around the world. In the 2011 edition, the represented nations ranged from Chile to India, Australia to Germany and from the USA to the Philippines. The exhibition is staged over approximately 3000 square meters of the Museum and gathers some of the best established as well as emerging talents in the world
Mas.s will be among the 135 participating artists. This original Dutch painter, living and working in London, has known a stormy development. Only 2 years ago, in his late forties, he picked up a painting brush for the first time in his life. Having been a very successful businessman all of his life in which he was tackled by cancer twice, starting at the young age of 24 and had many, many close calls, earning millions and losing them, in his new lease of life he is now developing his arts in a miraculous way. Last Saturday morning he was interviewed in the Big Breakfast show by Premier Christian Radio's Nage.

The Chianciano Art Museum has had significant exposure on national and international newspapers and magazines during the Biennale of Chianciano and was praised by the New York Times. The Biennale 2011 hosted the works of 160 artists and was curated by the same team that has staged exhibitions in the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Lord Leighton Museum, the Gagliardi Gallery and the Chelsea Town Hall to name a few.

Mas.S is my artist name. I have found the creativity to express myself through the following paintings. I have painted the beauty of this world and some elementary topics in society at large in a new, fresh and colourful way. I hope you like it. Love, Mas.s
