After being in India for 2½ months, including a lockdown for one month, we are back and the GO Gallery is open again.
The exhibition that we started in January, ‘The Private Collection’, was a big succes, most pieces were sold.
Our private collection is large enough to create a new exhibition. And that’s what we did.
A selection of the collectable art works that we bought through the last 3 decades are on display and for sale.
We want to share our love with you.
The gallery is open from Thursday – Saturday.
Do you prefer to make an appointment and enjoy the exhibition alone or a different time?
Don’t hesitate to call us!

Locked down in Bombay until May 3rd.

Dear friends, visitors, dear art lovers and art buyers.
First off all we hope you’re safe and healthy in this difficult time and fragile world we live in!
Not only is our beautiful gallery closed for an indefinite period, but our website is also not up to date.
Since 3 weeks, the moment that we planned to travel back home in Amsterdam, we are stuck in Bombay. The location where we are has very poor internet coverage.
We cannot easily upload the new artworks by Ard Doko, The London Police, Rhamsey Kuijper, the ASA artists like Ives.One, the ArtBattle artists such as Ricardo Cherbeluka. To give you an example, to create this message, it takes more than an hour…. Patience is the key word.
The exciting exhibitions that we planned for this year have all be postponed.  In the nearby future, we would like to share some of the artworks that we love so much with you. with you. please visit our website frequently.

The 4 images were shot at Easter, not far from where we live.

 

Millions of children have no idea what is happening in the world.  All these two want are the candies in those big jars.
They’re so happy for the moment!

Photo on top: This is Sonali. She lives down the road beside the pavement under the trees, since more than 5 years with her husband, another family and a bunch of adorable babies, cute toddlers and kids. She gave birth to 3 babies, only 2 survived so far.
We support them when we are here and she became kind of a friend.
“Photo photo” she cried. “Make my photo for your friends, Happy Easter!” Happy Easter to all our beloved ones, lots of love from Bombay.

We miss our city Amsterdam and being at the gallery.
We miss our friends and family.
We hope to be united soon.
In the meantime : take care of each other, good luck!

Devdas, original billboard on canvas, 2002 on auction at CATAWIKI.

Devdas, billboard, painted on canvas, 2002, 167×283 cm.

Devdas is a 2002 Indian romantic drama film  directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and based on the 1917 Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay‘s novel Devdas. This is the third Hindi version and the first film version of the story in Hindi done in colour.[4][5] The film is set in the early 1900s and follows Shah Rukh Khan as Devdas, a wealthy law graduate who returns from London to marry his childhood sweetheart, Paro, played by Aishwarya Rai. However, the rejection of this marriage by his own family sparks his descent into alcohol, ultimately leading to his emotional deterioration and him seeking refuge with a courtesan played by Madhuri Dixit.
Devdas is one of the biggest Bollywood blockbusters of this century.

This piece is one of the last hand painted movie billboards.
After 2002, all the movie posters were digitally printed.
In 2005 GO Gallery organized a big Indian Film Poster exhibition in collaboration with the Indian Film Academy Award organization, IFAA.
This painting was the showstopper of the event, now on auction at CATAWIKI.
