When we sat down at a gallery cafe, there was this girls reading her book in the doorway. She allowed me to take some pictures, and we briefly spoke. I promised to send her the pictures, but unfortunately I've lost her socials.. It is a shame, because this one turned out as one of my all-time favorites.

In the jungle, where there is always noise and chatter, one can lose their way quite easily. Lost in the jungle and lost in themselves, many find themselves struck down, always being in company and still feeling alone. It is only when one slows down, takes an occasional moment to breath, listens to the silence, that one finds the answer that had been in front of them all this time.

This illustration is part of a series containing 50 pieces that is currently in production. Key words for this one were 'Romantic Jungle', 'Alone', 'Not Lonely' and 'Occasional Silence'.

Lisboa: Araújos
24/08/2022
When I saw this elderly couple walking down the street I instantly reached out to my camera. The sight of him guiding his blind wife through the busy streets was just so endearing. And when they walked under this sign which said Araújos (smth like 'white flower') I finally got a clean shot. It's been one of my absolute favorites ever since.

- Banner for the MUKASABRO B-day Bash (09/09/2019)
Graphic Design
194mm/111mm
At the time this was made, I literally had few to none experience with digital art. Because of that, photoshop seemed like the way to go when I had to design a banner for my first commercial event. Because the event mostly revolved around gritty electronic music, a b/w theme with stern photographs seemed like the way to go.
- SPARV Sticker (16/01/2020)
Graphic Design
169mm/169mm
Although the original piece had been made as a stencil art experiment, this sticker was later on altered to the first sticker in a series that to the day contains two more designs. Stay tuned for the meaning behind the alias 'SPARV' and keep your eyes open for stickers in your neighborhood.

- Psychedelic Eye Study (28 /09 /2019)
Acrylic on bass guitar
340mm/600mm
This piece was commissioned by a friend of mine and to me was a way to get back into acrylic painting and to study emotions portrayed by the human eye. I had a great time with it and I hope to do more custom painting on musical instruments in the future.
- 'Equivalent Exchange' (20/11/2019)
Spraypaint on MDF
183mm/82mm (as exposisioned at Marecollege Leiden)
Being a very relevant piece with everything that's been going on with the movement, Equivalent Exchange’ is a piece of art that revolves around an assumption concerning the relation
between the West and the third world. The assumption is grounded in the belief that for instance
Europe, with all its wealth and welfare, has everything to offer to refugees and luck seekers from the
third world; that this is a one-way street; that refugees and luck seekers only come to take advantage
from this. Nothing could be more wrong.
It is this exact materialistic point of view from the West that results in the neglection of the qualities
of for example young people from these third world countries and/or areas of conflict. Qualities such as love
for one’s neighbour and an instinct for caretaking, but also having very specific dreams and the untouched ability to focus
on that which is important to them, leaving everything else out of the picture.
In this piece, the western- and third world offer each other a hand, both palms facing upwards,
offering that which the other has a lack of. With the West it is wealth, welfare and a certain degree of
political stability (young adult with backpack). With the third world it is all the qualities that were
mentioned earlier and which cannot be expressed in materialism (child with another child).

- 'The Tongue Cut Sparrow' (11/04/2020)
Acryl and Oil on MDF
800mm/800mm
Inspired by Japanese folklore, this portrait depicts the Tongue-Cut Sparrow, a figure in a story about greed, contentment and humidity. It started out as a study for a painting course and is to my regret still unfinished. This is because I am still in the process of learning to paint portraits with the corresponding skin tones. Only the birds are painted with oils, the rest is all done with acrylic paint.

- 'Das Holzfrala' (15/01/2020)
Birchwood and coating
190mm/470mm
This sculpted mask is a derivative from German folklore and inspired by the great spotted woodpecker and the wolf. 'Das Holzfrala' was a very personal project, depicting my connection with nature, the way of Karma and symbolizing the months I spent in Germany during my internship with küko in 2019. It was made during said internship, and made possible by Annette Hähnlein and her husband.
-'Peggy (Female Anatomy Study)' (06/03/2020)
Grey Clay
165mm/205mm/360mm
Made during a sculpting course, this small statue was made with a live model as reference an basically functioned only as a anatomy study and practice with the medium.
