I am an international contemporary artist working internationally. I do a lot but I'm still poor, If you like to earn money please look for a other place. You can assist a Volontaire my projects and also have the opportunity to develop your own. Sculpting, movie making, painting, photoshop, drawing performances. A lot of the projects that I create and participate in have a central focus in giving and sharing.
For example, The Secret Project: I draw peoples secrets and then they choose to keep the drawing or to give the drawing to the exhibition. I also work with thousands of vinyl records in radio projects and I use it as material for the artworks I both see or give away. Another important element is to work with children in educational projects both at home or abroad. Egmond aan den Hoef is a beach-place where most Amsterdam people spend their summer. The nature of the dunes is inspiring and peacefully quiet. The atelier is located across the street of the local church in the centre of the small village. It is 45 minutes from Amsterdam. I have an office space and broad social network in the capital of The Netherlands so I can introduce you easily to the local urban community.
