Street Art Inspiration

Category: Mural
Location: Groningen, the Netherlands

A young couple had seen a street art painting in Romania. They asked me to make my own version of it, and paint it on their city wall. The picture on the left was taken in Romania, the picture on the right was made by me.
As a kid I always was a wanderer, walking around outside, looking for cool spots and places. Adventure! Also I loved to draw. I decided I wanted to be an artist. Both my parents are deaf, and I figured they would be able to enjoy my visual work as much as I did. I studied at the art academy, and got my bachelors degree. Then I studied to get my masters degree. I learned to not only focus on the painting itself, but also on the space surrounding it.. in many ways.. After graduating and visiting New York, I took time to reinvent myself. By now I see myself growing towards larger and more complex murals. I would love to enlarge my work field, and be able to paint in other countries as well as my own.
