A workshop of a month Tirzo Martha and I did with Fiona Henriquez, junior tutor at IBB and among others participants from a MBO school Cibap and quite a few IBB-alumni students. We have created a strong environment in the Museum De Fundatie in the city of Zwolle. We responded on 4 songs of the populair singers  Nick and Simon. Of course along the process we got lost in their poetry and in our own harmonious chaos.



During my 4 week stay in Buenos Aires in October 2015, invited for a residency by URRA –    (later I’ll show some results) I had a beautiful chance tot fulfill a spontaneous commission at the Dutsch embassy; a mural inside their building

My experiences of walking, observing, communicating, living in this enormous city came back in the images I painted on these walls.
