Tekenkabinet – big drawing art in small formats

I’ve been busy creating plenty of drawings lately. I’ve come to realize that drawing doesn’t always have to be intricate or purposeful; sometimes it’s simply about connecting the dots or following a line with no particular intention other than enjoying the act of drawing itself. Placing shapes on the paper feels like arranging stepping stones […]

Big Art 2023

Big Art was truly BIG! Almost 6.000 – six thousand!! – visitors came to see our pop-up XL art show. What a blast! And I enjoyed every second of it.

New studio at ACTA – let’s share

I found a new studio at Broedplaats ACTA. The space is wonderful. But for me alone it is even slightly too big. It has a mezzanine of roughly 12 square meters that is more or less empty. It would be fun to share the space on a temporary basis. If you have a project* that […]

They show details from gardens and landscapes. Each of them has its own colour pallet, belonging to a specific moment in the […]

To bridge the time in between, they organise a series of “Kunstvierdaagse”: every month, four different artists will stay and work for four days […]

Workbook ‘Thank you for being an Artist’

Our weekly sessions at the tuinatelier of K.F. Hein Fonds are completed. Together with spoken word artist wordbites I was allowed to use this space for three months as an artist in residence. We met once every week and had a conversation about our work as artists and related aspects that we felt like giving a […]
