I’m a multimedia artist but also a multi-art artist & designer, I love to do it all, I recognize myself in the old renaissance artists like Leonardo daVinci and Michelangelo. I paint, sculp, design, make music, invent, perform, make installations, light-art and video-art.
With every medium I use, I channel different parts of myself.
For the last 10 years my main focus has been on light-art, installation-art and on video-art.

The images for my video-installations emerge from my subconscious. They are surrealistic dreamscapes in which I play with gender, sexuality, stereotypes, subcultures & taboos. Inspired by the cinemascope films from my childhood, I create large horizontal canvasses which I fill with strange people, animals, bizarre vehicles and mythical creatures. Every canvas can be viewed as a digital Tableaux Vivant. Every now and then I merge some of these digital canvasses together to create a short non-narrative film. Because these short films have no clear story, viewers are stimulated to create their own story for the films.

My monumental light-art installations emerge from my conscious mind. They embody my concerns about the world of today. Because they are mostly temporary works that can be seen during a festival they are very suitable for addressing the problems of our modern society with topics as Global Warming, Fake News, Social Media etc.

Next to my art projects I work as a designer, designing interiors for bars, clubs & restaurants, boats for the Canal Pride, stage designs, and 3D renders.

The similarity between all these different projects is that they are all ment to initiate a dialogue with their audience, no art for art sake, but art & design that challenges, provokes, entertains, unites, and stands in the middle of society.

When not designing or working on my art projects I like to spin alternative music as underground DJ run paint run.
