My works of art express a metarealistic perception of our world, traditional in the history of Dutch painting.
However, the source of my inspiration can also be found in European surrealism as well in American hyper-, and photo realism.
In my collection Portraits of Icons of the post-war period of the 20th century I introduced the iconography of our era.
These images of celebrities characterise movie-stars, media personalities plus inspirational individuals from the field of music, art, politics and philosophy.
With these portraits I pay tribute to famous people with extraordinary gifts and talents, who influenced the development of mankind and left their mark on various fields during the 20th century.
My perception of life on Earth is often depicted in a surrealistic manner.
My attitude towards our environment is charged with criticism
as well as hope for a better future.
My paintings aspire to evoke the sense of beauty and to raise awareness of burning issues in todays world....
