ABOUT

When I paint, I get inspired by different types of music. Music is very important in my painting proces. Artists like Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane. But I can also be in my own world by listening to the operas of Elina Garanca. With music in the background I think about life, I get inspired by other people’s life stories, the parallels that occur in one’s life and in my own and I try to translate those experiences or emotions on the canvas, which then come back in the layered structure of the painting. If someone is mesmerized by the painting, I feel satisfied and then I know that it’s finished. In that case I haven’t only translated my own story, but also released a bit of emotion from someone else and so we can alle continue living…
