The Wolves in Wolves project recognised well established connections Wolverhampton already has with the Netherlands, in particular the Princess Irene Brigade who come to Wolverhampton every November for the remembrance service for the Dutch soldiers buried at Jeffcock Rd cemetery.
After discussion with the Dutch embassy, Wolves in Wolves contacted Clemens Briels.
Clemens is a well-established artist with artworks, including work in several renowned art collections held in Europe, North America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Singapore and Shanghai. Clemens was elected as the "Official Olympic Artist" for the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City in 2002.
His work consists mainly of paintings and glass sculptures, characterized by the use of bright colours and the use of a depth effect by embossing on the canvas. But his signature is and will always be the cheerful and optimistic outlook on life.
