Make art, not advertising.
When not making advertising I love getting my hands dirty making art. It's best described as 'Mash-up Pop Art'. I get my inspiration from (surprisingly) old ads, comic books and music. Mashing up things to create fresh new contexts for words and/or pictures is what I love doing most. A stack of magazines, stencils, markers and spray cans always gets me going. Some highlights below.

MASH IT UP!
For over two years I‘ve been making art in which song titles and/or lyrics are the main inspiration. During this creative process of playing with putting lyrics on paper I had this AHA-moment. I started for example with a line of the Doors and added a line from Bruce Springsteen underneath it. ‘People are strange, dancing in the dark’. Or ‘On a dark desert highway, baby we were born to run’. That was the moment that I realized I was onto something. Since then I've been making numerous of these ‘lyrical mashups’ and I'm creating new ones every week.
I mix all sorts of images to build my backgrounds. (magazines, manuals, comics) On top of that splatters of acrylic paint and typography created with spray cans and stencils. All together it gives it a nice streetfeel.
According to Wikipedia: Onomatopoeia is the process of creating a word that phonetically imitates, resembles, or suggests the sound that it describes. This is exactly the thing I'm exploring in this collection. ZONK, BOOM, BROOOMM, POW, and so on. It becomes art that talks to you.
Big 'sound words' on top of layers and layers of old comics.
The result: a colorful celebration of my love for comics.
Each piece is build up from all sorts of original comic book pages. The giant 'onomatopoeia' is partly transparent, creating a nice interaction between the two.
MODEL MEETS COMIC
A series of artworks in which I recycle fashion ads and mix them with parts of vintage comics. Two worlds meeting each other in a new and fresh street feel. I've just finished around 16 of these and most of them are for sale as unique pieces (30 x 40 cm) in a black frame.
Each piece is build up from all sorts of original comic book pages mixed with models from fashion ads.
MORE MORE MORE
I'm already making art for over 20 years so there's much, much more to show. Some highlights behind the link!
