Tjalf Sparnaay has been working on an innovative oeuvre since 1987, constantly seeking new images that had never been painted before. His Megarealism is part of the contemporary international movement now known as Hyperrealism; he is now seen as one of the most important and trend-setting painters internationally in that style.
His artworks are displayed in collections all over the world and regularly exhibited outside the Netherlands, for instance in New York. Sparnaay had his first solo museum show in 2015 in Museum de Fundatie; his work has also been exhibited in Rotterdam’s prestigious Kunsthal and in various other museums. A number of his paintings were included in 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting, an international exhibition that toured through the USA and Europe.
