About me


To understand my artistic challenges, I would like to go back to the 80s of the last century. As a young man full of artistic passion, I decided to design and manufacture woolen tapestries. In my studio in Groningen (Netherlands), I learned the weaving technique. I also started to learn the technique of dyeing sheep wool. The existing weaving frames did not satisfy me, so I decided to design new frames according to my own idea. It took me a lot of time and energy. After some time I got positive results. In  the 80s, I designed and made several tapestries. They were both classic and modern designs.

It was also there that I organized the first exhibition of my works. This exhibition was received positively by the local community and the local press. In the end of the 80s, I moved to a place near Amsterdam, where I still designed and produced new tapestries. Then I also made my largest tapestry (200x100cm) which I called: Jesus in Gethsemane. This tapestry still hangs in a church in Almere near Amsterdam. In the early 90s, I started working more commercially. I started with making industrial design racks for small electronics, made of wood (american cherry) as well as metal. Some projects have been registered in the Benelux modelling office in Luxemburg. I made contacts in interior designs shops in Amsterdam, as well as in other cities in the Netherlands. Over the years, I still have not stopped looking for new artistic methods, something new, which is not yet known. It has always been my passion and remains so to this day.

Somewhere from 2013 or 2015 I started to be passionate about the colours of nylon and plastic (PVC). In our everyday life, people use products made from these materials a lot. I decided to use these materials in my art works. My passion was to obtain controlled forms from these materials. For my work I use strings from these materials. To get the right forms, I use hot air and special stencils. My big challenge is to get different forms and control this process. The time and temperature of the hot air are very important. The beginning of the process of obtaining the right forms was very difficult. But after many experiments, I was able to positively control this process. The results are my latest art works. I do not know if this process is known in the modern art world.

My latest artistic works are wooden disks with a diameter of 30 to 50 cm. These disks are painted in different colours. These disks are the background on which my art projects made of nylon and plastic are mounted. They are glued to wooden sticks under different angles a few centimeters from the disk surface. These figures are often finished with pieces of amber.
