This young artist is continuing to stay ahead of the curve and works in various disciplines, while smoothly navigating between commercial and autonomous projects. Ingredients from highbrow, lowbrow, cartoons, fashion, and mythology blend seamlessly through his work, resulting in contemporary art bursting with energy. Pairing his bold and colorful style with paintings, sculptures, light works, illustration, clothing, murals and prints. Any surface is suitable to transform his message. The diversity of attributes all lead towards the road of achieving happiness in this world. The work ‘De mystieke geboorte van Rotterdam‘ got acquired by the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in 2017.
