Two years ago the first documentary series presented by Mr. Jeroen Krabbé did portray the work and life of Vincent Van Gogh. In this year's series Mr. Krabbé takes us on a trip through France, Spain and Italy, following the footsteps of the richest, most famous and most talented artist that has ever lived; Pablo Picasso.
Design duo Kranen/Gille can celebrate ten years of designing with their solo-exhibition 'The industrial character of Kranen/Gille'. About 40 pieces of their design, un-commissioned work and prototypes give the visitors an insight into the world of Kranen/Gille.
Having a mom that could easily be crowned 'the Queen of Mandalas', I decided to try out making some abstract work as well. So this weekend I sat down and made my first ever abstract illustration. The biggest surprise of all; it suited me better than I'd ever imagined!
What better way to start the weekend than with a freshly finished illustration?! This week's illustration challenge was to draw this beautiful portrait of Jean Seberg, an American actress from the '50s who unfortunately got more famous for the tragedies surrounding her personal life than for her big screen performances.
One of my favorite museums in the Netherlands is about to close its doors. After 16 years and many beautiful exhibitions the AAMU museum of contemporary Aboriginal art in Utrecht, has come to its final exhibition.
This week I've been working hard on a portrait of the very talented actress and director Lupita Nyong'o. I found a picture of her in a magazine some time ago and wanted to make a drawing of it, not just because she's beautiful but also because I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into the precious lace top by Erdem she's wearing.
Right before the closing of the exhibition, my friend Katrien and I decided to pay a visit to 'Rik Wouters & het huiselijk utopia'(Rik Wouters & the private utopia) at the MoMu in Antwerp. A beautiful hommage to a painter who died 100 years ago.
The exhibit 'Over de grens' which means 'Crossing borders', at De Domijnen in Sittard features work of artists who are looking for connections with people from other cultures, seeking contact with and opening up towards others.
Even though it's been a bit quiet over here, I've had some very busy and productive weeks working hard on new content, ideas and my instagram footage. To celebrate it's weekend I decided to share this little self-portrait I finished this afternoon.
This weekend I felt like drawing. I started to make a small self-portrait (12x12 cm/5x5 inches). Although it's not perfect, I'm happy with how it turned out. For me it was a good try out working with colored chalks instead of just grey and to sketch a portrait in a smaller size. Now that I've discovered a taste for drawing again, I know more will follow soon!
