What-you-see-is-what-you-get
As a teenager I started working with photography fanatically and around my thirties I made it my profession. At the same time, I developed myself as a graphic designer and later on as an art director for campaigns and large graphic productions. In 2009 I moved from Amsterdam to Texel. The use of photography is one of the main features of my work, both commissioned and autonomous. My style of working can best be described as 'urban pop art' and is a reflection on living in the city with the use of elements from Texel's nature. It consists of mixed-media compositions based on photography, text, acrylic paint and sometimes residual material. My work is mostly composed of images and text. I draw from an extensive archive of thousands of analogue and digital photos. Sometimes I combine those images with edits of iconic visuals. I often add text that associates with the image or gives it more depth. Sometimes these are verses from pop songs, sometimes a quote from a film or lyrics that arise from your own experiences. My work is autobiographically linked anyway. In addition to photography, typography has an important place in my work. This naturally stems from my profession as a graphic artist. In my art I always look for the raw, sometimes against graffiti. It is therefore quite 'urban' with a sharp edge. Strangely enough, I find the inspiration for this in the rugged landscape or on junk yards in the countryside of Texel.
