To paint is my way of analysing and understanding the world. My themes are always derived from everyday experiences and impressions. In my paintings I explore topics like movement, energy, contrast and the mystery of emotions. I am interested in how they interconnect into body language as the true expression of the individual.

MOSAIC MURAL BRAINSTORMING AND SKETCHING

Category : Art Journal
Date : July 10, 2013

I got together with a group of IOE students to start working on the mosaic for the first time on a lovely spring afternoon. From the start I wanted this to be their mural. I wanted an artwork which expresses their ideas, interests and the mood in their Student’s Union. When I was a student in the Netherlands, all we had was a canteen with somewhat tasteless fast food and bad coffee. I can’t help compare this to all the IOE Student’s Union has to offer. It organises a variety of events, including life music and poetry, and offers it’s students classes in salsa, pilates, yoga and swing. So yes, music is a big theme and quickly became central to the piece. The other recurring themes were being in London, IOE being a place of transition and growth, and IOESU values like Equality, Peace, Freedom and Justice. So I integrated a cityscape and a network of flowing roads which run through the final design. The notes are from Imagine.

The picture below is the version I created based on the sketches of the students.
