Biography

During his early years he meticulously reproduced personal photographs in paint. He received the Werkbeurs Grant from FBKVB in Holland and moved to New York in 1992, where he began to work primarily in black and white, reemphasizing his connection to photography. In 1994 he had his first solo show at Galerie Reisel, Holland, and began exhibiting in as well as curating group shows. He was assistant to several artists in New York, and worked on production for the photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin from 1996 until 2000. In 1998 he produced Liza May Post’s film and photograph ”Trying”. In that same year he attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, where he began experimenting with murals, collage paintings, and drawing directly on photographs, the style which he continues to use today. In 1999 he finished his first large scale ink on C-print drawing entitled 10 AM-PM. In 2001 he had his solo debut, ”Veronica”, at Roebling Hall, New York.
