Although born in the Netherlands and currently based in Paris, Michael Van den Besselaar's work is firmly rooted in American culture and celebrates the manner in which that culture has been projected around the world: television. His paintings, resemblng the 13" Zeniths and RCAs we were all raised on, freeze those fleeting images once beamed into our collective consciousness and memory via the TV in the living room, now ever-present on screens of all sizes in every niche of our lives.
