Featured – Art For Your Ear Podcast

Still can’t believe it!

Last week I had the big honour to be interviewed by Danielle Krysa, aka The Jealous Curator, during her “Art For Your Ear” Podcast. I was quite nervous at the beginning, but Danielle immediately helped me out to feel more relaxed and confident.

If you want to hear my crappy voice and of course have more insights aobut my art process, jump to her blog and listen the entire podcast here. Enjoy!

Jaco Putker – Sinister Art Prints

Love!

The Dutch contemporary artist and printmaker Jaco Putker creates a fascinating dialogue between digital and traditional techniques. His surreal compositions are a dark, magical, sinister and nostalgic melting pot.

Michael Meadors – Maiden America

Amazing!

The artist Michael Meadors creates amazing portraits that they look like collages.

The truth is that they are beautiful graphite and pens portraits finished with bright enamel paint.

Etsy Shop – New Works 004

New tiny experiments!

Here we are after a looong while, with some of my brand new and small collages that you can find on my Etsy shop on a very affordable price.

I like to create these pieces, because the limited space where I have to work on, gives me a challenging way to highlight the beauty of each vintage portrait.

I hope you will enjoy my new experiments on vintage found photos.

 

Photo Transfers On Canvas 003

New stuff!

Here we are again with other photo transfers on canvas experiments, this time I wanted to celebrate the beauty of vintage photo booth portraits. Surfing on amazing online collections on Flickr, I found some interesting photos that I wanted to reinvent using this technique.

So I made 10 photo booth inspired artworks on canvas, using my favourite tools, as pens and highlighters. This is what came out from this series, I hope you will enjoy and your feedback is more than welcome 🙂
