"There are certain people who believes that art belongs to the gallery,
and I really believe that art belongs to the street, to the people."

Why do I paint pictures with clouds?
They are everywhere, the easiest way to find inspiration is to just raise your head and look up into the sky. It is always beautiful and always special, just like people!
I lived on the island of Bali for 4 months, walking barefoot. Life on the island connects with nature. You live among the jungle and the ocean, like little Mowgli. I carried my sketchbook everywhere and made sketches after meditations or when waiting for my breakfast, observing thousands of unique plants. This is how the illustration for TIJN appeared. For me, this is about ecology, caring for our planet and being involved in this huge world.
