As any-media artist I live on the cutting edge of art, media and idealism. In my opinion, art offers an inexhaustible resource of communication possibilities. Therefore I experience an immense freedom of creativity, which causes me to find great challenges in rendering new combinations of media and points of view, and exploring the possibilities of communication and their effect on audiences and spectators.

Working and traveling in Africa and South America awakened my deep respect for indigenous cultures, life and the entire organism of living nature, of which we all are part. Adding to this, I’ve been extremely lucky to have found a deeper understanding of the inner beauty of life and our connectedness with ‘all’, thanks to several powerful shamanic and entheogenic practices from the Amazon rainforest and the amazing Bwiti cult of Gabon.

There’s no doubt that much of my work is influenced by the impressions I’ve got from these wonderful people, my travels and experiences. I hope to express a glimpse of this through my art and bring it into your consciousness.

On this site my recent projects, examples of my work and upcoming events. And of course you have the possibility to buy my
