Pictoplasma 2012

I've said 'ja' to the invitation to give a lecture at the Pictoplasma conference this April. Place of happening; Berlin, Germany. I'll find myself among some fine fellow Dutchies in Art like the Sauerkids, Raymond Lemstra and Florentijn Hofman, and other great colleagues such as Nathan Jurevicius, Henning Wagenbreth and many more. Click this link to get more information and to see the lineup so far. I'm looking forward to it!

Fish in Progress

My work is usually about stories featuring anthropomorphized animals (or inanimates) and sometimes my inspiration simply comes from the wish to paint a certain fauna member. I prefer cats, closely followed by dogs, birds, and insects. And some species play a very small role in my work. Like fish, for example. But that changed when a new idea for a painting popped before my minds eye. And not just one fish, I imagined a whole posse! I'm still working on it but wanted to share this Pike and Barbel detail.
