acrylic and spray paint on cardboard, 68 x 53 cm, 2021

Transforming from a photographer to a painter was quite challenging. I always had an interest in painting, which is unique and not repeatable. It kept lingering in my mind and after a few experimental drawings on my i-Pad, I got more confident and started to work on cardboard using acrylic and spray can paint.

With my photo work the body has always been the focus. With the paintings I could explore a whole new facet of the male, his face. Which to me seem even more interesting and complex than the body. Using the cardboard, instead of traditional canvas, I could break away from the very artificial world of digital photography.
No more photoshop, but just me with my brushes and spray cans, eager to explore a whole new world.
