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.

post New Painting…

October 12th, 2011

Filed under: illustratie, art — dirty @ 11:13 am

For the ones who read this archive-blog regularly you know i’ve been making paintings for a long
time now. Somehow VJ-ing took a big part of my time lately and i’ve been taking a break from painting
also because art became more serious for me in the last couple of years by doing exhibitions, selling
works and even curating shows….but this week i made this one….nothing serious and just for fun.
Just AWESOME…i love it. It’s about the adventures of MR. Rogers…an orange haired cat.
I’m thinking of making it a series. I really had fun making this one and i just wanted to share the fun!

Filed under: art, exhibitions — dirty @ 6:30 pm


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.

post Exhibition @ Kunsttour maastricht 2008.

Filed under: art, exhibitions, party — dirty @ 3:00 pm

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

post Expo at Streetvision Breda.

Filed under: art, streetart — dirty @ 2:13 pm

Simultaneously with the kunsttour i took part in this exhibition. For this one i made a mural (detail shots below) and the first half of a double piece that featured in both Breda and in Maastricht. I was thinking a lot about the position of the human in current society and how the enormous inflation makes people be more on the lookout for “number 1″. Its some serious things which i tried to incorporate in the themes for both exhibitions.streetvision-flyer.jpgstreetvision003-2008.jpgstreetvision002-2008.jpgstreetvision001-2008.jpg

post Exhibition @ Villa Nuts DenHaag

February 28th, 2008

Filed under: art, streetart, exhibitions — dirty @ 8:00 pm




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

post Illustration Blind magazine

October 20th, 2005

Filed under: illustratie, publicatie, art — dirty @ 3:00 pm


This magazine was an idea from the mind of Rotterdam based artist Marijke Appelman.
At this time i was fully emerged in printmaking…eat sleep breathe printmaking every day.
Especially the combination of printing frames from animations i made and printing (etching)
frames that i made into an animation. For Marijke’s magazine i submitted an image from
a series of stills that were to be photo-etched and printed, i was really interested to see if the
image would survive the steps from film to animation to photo-etch to silkscreened image.

The folded magazine was hand printed in brown and red acrylic ink in an edition of 225.
A lot of people i respected (and still respect) at that time were in this mag.

post Full feature at VPRO NACHTPODIUM

January 28th, 2005

Filed under: VJ, art, misc., film/animation — dirty @ 12:00 am

Famous Dutch rave/breakcore producer FFF and myself were asked to do a full audiovisual liveset in the basement of the VPRO TVstudio in Hilversum. This as part of a feature about VJ-ing on a show called “Nachtpodium”. We installed our equipment and killed the spot with an all-out assault of completely cut-up terror in sound and visuals. I.a.w. we had a blast…i consider this one of our best live gigs ever. The show was aired on 28 januari 2005 and i got calls from people allover that said that couldnt watch the show because their TVset just BROKE DOWN! Check here for some text about the show over at vpro. Then here is a link to the vprowebsite where you can click on the left to see some of the footage. FFF cut up our part of the show into 4 pieces here:


post Nachtpodium bumper VPRO Nederland3

November 20th, 2004

Filed under: art, misc., film/animation — dirty @ 12:00 pm


This is a bumper by Dutch film maker Irene van der Top made for the TV program “Nachtpodium” for infamous (or should i say famous?) Dutch national TV broadcaster VPRO. This bumper was aired in 2004/2005. Here i was asked to give my opinion as to what is “GOOD TELEVISION”. The image on the TV is a talkshow taken from the VPRO archive. AT the end of the session the TV exploded and there was fire and rubble everywhere. Also the floor was covered with paint (i even wrote text on the floor with spraypaint and put THAT on fire!). It was very fun to do. The site is in a building at the now famous JAVAKADE in Amsterdam. Check it out here:

Filed under: VJ, art, party — dirty @ 8:00 pm

Through the legendary C-MEN i was introduced to VJ alexandre, a supercool vj from
Strassbourg in France….he invited me to come play at Pixels Festival which he co-produces.
Funny enough Roel from KMKZ VJ was there too and we did some small b2b action…
This festival is so amazing…supercool crowd…awesome deco….wicked music…
and the best thing….they have a line-up of VJs. At that time i was still VJing with VHS
tapes…so i brought like 300 videotapes on the train…hahaha…legendary!
Actually having 5 projectors for your show was uncanny in 2002 too…good times!
