Artist, graduated on the art-academy(1995-1998) in Den Bosch (the Netherlands) and later post-graduate on the Ateliers in Amsterdam (2000-2001). His interest focus on the way how people life's get organized and conditioned by systems and conventions. His work is often performance related. He likes to interact with the local context and investigate people and their relationship with their surrounding and space they're in. This space could be either private or public and he's using the most effective medium to give a creative contribution to that specific situation. The last two years he working in different countries and cities around the world with a mobile studio concept. For different cities he made a mobile studio which reacts, reflects and comments on the surrounding.
My work is often performance related. I like to interact with the local context; I investigate people and their surrounding and the space they're in. This space can be either private or public, and use the most effective medium.
Depending on the situation and the envirronment I work with various new media(such as audio and video) that ultimately lead to a perfromance or installation.
A tempory intervention is often confronting,ask questions,is politic for even poetic.
