Art foundation “on the sand” invited Daniël and me to go to Istanbul for this art project. We were
asked to study traditional Delft blue and produce our own (traditional) view on this well known Dutch
tradition on big round stones in front of the opera house in Kadiköy, Istanbul. Also we were asked to
art direct the dutch side project and technically advise on the whole. The team consisted of the on
the sand team, a Turkish host crew, 16 Turkish artists and 5 Dutch artists. In total we painted 49 stones.

The whole project was organized to celebrate 400 years of trade relations between our countries and the
common ancestry of İznik and delft blue that both descend from traditional Ming Chinese porcelain.

Finishing this many stones was a huge feat considering the short production time, the harsh weather,
technical difficulties and constant traffic by trucks, trams and hordes of pedestrians. Everybody was
extremely happy with the final result and the project was opened as a permanent exhibition by the
Dutch Cultural Attache in Istanbul: Daniel Stork and the mayor of Kadiköy.

From early 2003 untill the end of 2007 i was heavily emerged in printmaking culture.
Especially etching, photo-etching, stenciling and screenprinting.
This resulted in a considerable amount of works and exhibitions in a relatively short period of time.
Some of my favorite etching works from 04-06 were exhibited at this exhibition.

For the third year in a row the complete napalmed collective joins the kunsttour weekend in Maastricht. Again we changed Jesic’s studio into a gallery to showcase our works. Which worked rather well, for us this was surely the best visited kunsttour ever.
This year i tried to move away from the installational type of work, so it’s more of a 2d thing.kunsttour001-2008.jpgkunsttour002-2008.jpg

Met de expositie from the street on up! presenteert curator Joseph Kosir (Dirty Brown Visuals) een integer en realistisch overzicht van dit hedendaagse cultuurfenomeen.
Streetart is een beweging ontstaan uit een kruisbestuiving tussen graffiti en politiek activisme en maakt onder andere gebruik van agressieve reclame technieken om haar boodschap te verspreiden.

Binnen de hedendaagse kunst wordt op dit moment regelmatig aandacht besteed aan de streetart als beweging en als kunststroming. Daarbij wordt echter vaak alleen aandacht besteed aan het illustratieve element en worden de politieke en actieve street elementen vergeten. Met een brede line-up van (internationale) streetartists laten wij zien Whats for real!.

In from the street on up! wordt vooral de credible streetart belicht alsmede de exponenten in fashion en illustratie die deze energieke kunststroming teweeg heeft gebracht.

met Baschz, B.I.C., Dstruct Collective, Sota Ide [JP], Matthijs de Valk, MP SOLO, Clemens Wolf [AT], Dirty Brown Visuals, A.C.A.B., ZEDZ, Krusty the Skull, Freek Braaspenning, Joey Greco [AT], J. Hoogendoorn/NAPALMED, en SuperBretsig
