Peter Engels


Peter Engels became world famous when he painted the portrait of Nelson Mandela. The painting appeared on the world’s largest billboard in Times Square, New York, when Mandela turned 90. The international press wrote that Peter Engels had managed to paint Mandela’s soul. This boosted  Peter Engels’ art career.

The fact that Prince Albert of Monaco bought Peter Engels’ portrait of his mother Princess Grace Kelly added to the upward spiral.

Peter Engels exhibits worldwide and he has art in every continent. Big names want to be portrayed, they order paintings from him and shower his art with praise as you will read further on.

Despite some major and emotional setbacks, Peter Engels does not give up and continues to paint excellent portraits in his own unique style, with the pallet knife and in his sparse colors. This makes him the best pallet knife painter in the most difficult art discipline: portraits. That is why you have to add an original Peter Engels to your collection.
