Norway’s Kenneth Blom to enjoy premiere Monaco exhibition at the Kamil Art Gallery

The Kamil Art Gallery on Avenue Princesse Grace is set to host Norwegian Kenneth Blom and his Silhouettes Unveiled collection this April. It will be the first time that the artist’s work has been on show in the Principality.  

Born in Demark and raised in Norway, Kenneth Blom’s inspiring use of ethereality has led to comparisons between himself and his fellow countryman, the great Edvard Munch. Though Munch was more drawn to the human figure, Blom’s interests address relationships in the exterior realm, with industrial or empty landscapes dominating his style, but with the same haunting impact as his compatriot.  

The 57-year-old painter’s blend of the real and the figurative is highlighted even further by the way his use of colour gives the appearance of subjects melting into one another to great emotional effect.  


Blom’s paintings have been celebrated all over the world, with shows in cities such as London, Berlin, Beijing, New York, and Oslo to his name. Now he is coming to the Principality, where the opening of his Silhouettes Unveiled collection at the Kamil Art Gallery will coincide with the start of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters tennis tournament.  

Held in conjunction with Galerie Birch, Silhouettes Unveiled will showcase a series of new works made specially for the occasion that explore “undefined space between abstraction and figuration, the silhouettes that emerge draw us into the mysteries of human psychology.” 

The exhibition will be available to view from Monday to Saturday between 11th and 22nd April, and from 10am to 7.30pm. There will be a special preview event at 6.30pm on 11th April. For more information, click here
