Pure Hair – Huub Vinken

16 June – 8 July 2007

In 2001 Huub Vinken started a project called Pure Hair, which is a collection of artists’ brushes using a lock of real hair of renowned and not-renowned contemporary painters. Each brush was engraved with the name of the painter concerned, similar to brushes of famous brands like ‘Da Vinci’. The collection consists of about 50 brushes, among them ‘names’ like Tom Wesselman, Erik van Lieshout, Imi Knoebel and Michael Raedecker. In 2016 this collection was sold to a renowned private collector in Brussels.
