WELCOME TO THE MATRIX
I was born in a small village in the south of the Netherlands
where I was an introverted kid. With a pencil, cardboard, paint
and glue I created my own worlds. I made drawings of cities and theme parcs and build the same things in 3D. In addition to these parallel worlds I had a fascination for TV.
When I was studying art I bought my first video camera and made a short documentary with my mentally disturbed aunt as the main figure. I graduated in 1998.
That not only my aunt was mentally disturbed became clear when I got interested in politics. In 2006 I started to create cartoons and tried to show the professionals who govern this planet. At the same time I walked through an audiovisual career that mainly
took place in Brussels. Surrounding myself with spokespersons and their politicians covering up their faillures.
I’ve experienced that there is something rotten in the state of Denmark or that there is something behind the throne greater than the King himself. Let’s get the hell outta here!
My interests have drasticly shifted when I came across a beautiful Tarot deck. And right now I am creating my version of the Tarot. I am working on 78 cards, I study symbolism, I’ve introduced myself into Rosicrucianism and Kabbala, and I think the Hebrew alphabet is the most beautiful alphabet on the planet. But, I'm still just a beginner...
From my cardboardworlds to the world of cartoons into a world where everything has a deeper meaning, even the fruitfly that lands on my apple. The discovery recently that the first three and the last three letters of my name form a special word gave my effort an extra acceleration.
Welcome to the Matrix!
