This Christmas, Dutch artist Marcel Schreur, will bring more than 25 works to the heart of London. His mantra is "Life is beautiful. Always". Sharing hope, peace, joy and love in his paintings and sculptures.
Having survived cancer twice and coming back from dementia and still heavily affected by the diseases, he is bleeding his experiences and love for life onto the canvas and into sculpting. He says "I have gift, a gift is to be shared, not exclusively owned. That's what I just love doing. Art is my expression of this gift".
An award winning international artist, working with the Prince's Trust, the Vatican and bringing a portrait of Pope Francis into the papal household are some of his recent achievements. He is currently in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University to create an artistic VR project on the experiences and perceptions of a vascular dementia and a cancer survivor.
