Art courses for children

I’ve started giving art lessons to children today!

Every child will be making a booklet filled with fantasy animals. We are working with beautiful animal pictures I found in old books.  They can cut, draw, paint or combine these images and think of interesting names for their creations.

Mensen doen Dingen #1

“Buiten motregent het, mensen haasten zich over het Spuiplein, diep weggedoken in hun plastic regenjassen. De eigenaar van het winkeltje draagt een aangenaam pluizige wollen trui en is bezig lage pootjes aan een oorspronkelijk hoog drankkastje te zetten. Hij zit op de grond tussen zoveel spullen dat het uw redactie duizelt als we binnenkomen. Fietsonderdelen, zeedieren of presse-papiers (onduidelijk), schilderijen van Franse clowns, kaarsenhouders met het gezicht van Quetzalcoatl. Alles is hier te vinden als je weet waar je moet kijken. En wat je zoekt.

U leest Mensen Doen Dingen, een -onverwachte nieuwsbrief over ontmoetingen met interessante en inspirerende mensen in Den Haag. In dit eerste nummer een interview met Carlo, de eigenaar van een antiekwinkeltje”

Mensen doen dingen is a Dutch newsletter about interesting people in The Hague. Made in collaboration with writer Martijn Gussekloo. Subscribe and read more here.

The actual magazine will be in shops soon, but you can read about the talent issue here. And pre-order it in their online shop.

GILGAMESH

Writer and friend Kira Wuck invited me to create visuals for a reading of Gilgamesh, or what is also called ‘the oldest poem of the world’.

Gilgamesh is a fierce guy, a son of the gods. He’s traveling long and far to find immortality. I made a stop-motion animation to portray his journey through different landscapes. Gilgamesh being an abstract shape who changes the landscape as he goes along, leaving his impressive marks. The landscape images are from my own archive, I made them in China and India in 2009. Such a pleasure to discover them again and to be able to use them for this project.

The animation was shown in de Tolhuistuin at an event of Stichting Granate. Moving sequences will be posted too.
