I bodypainted Pink Oculus for her new video Overdue (2:25) which was released recently! If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check it out! As I naturally support her ..I loved working together with my friend/ex-neighbor and above all fellow Queen! I strongly recommend to follow her and specially try to check her out on stage sometimes because this woman is for real for real!!
A while ago I was asked to do some facial art for a photoshoot of a locks-barber.
This young women Iris has such amazing locks herself and she knows how to treat them right!
If you have locks and you want them to give a fresh up, fix them if they went wrong, or if you are interested in transforming your regular hair into locks, she does it all! and good!
Check out some of the pictures and click the link below to visit her website.
I just realised that I haven’t even posted pictures of our performance last year! O_O
Oh well.. this year 2013, I joined my friends from the Poetry Circle Nowhere again in their performance at Solar Weekend Festival.
I have been doing Performing Arts & Bodypainting again!
This year we linked up and worked together with http://bouwjaar84 from Eindhoven and Fayst from Berlin. We combined all three of our concepts. It was an interesting journey to see how three groups of creatives with a different point of view came together and created something new!
Creatures from 3013
What do you see when u look in the mirror?
Does it reflect what you think is truth?
We started off with doing a parade-act through the festival, where we only communicated with the audience non-verbaly as creatures from 3013. This we also did last year as another apocalyptic tribe and which was very powerful.
During this parade we headed towards the theatre-area of Solar where we had our own ‘Dome’ tent. Here festival visitors could enjoy several performances such as “Eargasm” and “Cocoon”. We let them step into a different world outside of the hectic festival field, listening to improv. life music through headphones and watching interesting and new choreographies all around them. Meanwhile I was welcoming and bodypainting the visitors outside.
Last weekend I worked again for This Is Afrika via W.O.T.S./NoLimitzo at The Hague African Festival 2012.
This was the second time I did bodypaint-pieces at a festival, and it was interesting to have experienced the difference between them (Previous festival was Open Air Festival, read about it here) since they both had a different target-group and for example this time I worked a lot with kids and parents and the previous time it where all young (drunk/party/cool-with-everything/going wild) kinda people.

So I am doing a project with my friend Angela Tellier (photographer) in which I bodypaint (improvise) people and she shoots portraits of them. This is a ‘making of’ video filmed and edited By Benjamin Thenu during my 4th session bodypainting my friend Claudio Ritfeld aka Claudius de KrentenKoning. After this he used it also for a performance during my neighbor Marvin’s houseparty where also a video was shooted which I will post soon!

On may 26th and 27th I did bodypaint-pieces in the ‘This Is Africa’ area on the ‘Open Air Festival 2012’ in Amsterdam (Gaasperplas). These two days where amazing, it was my first time to work on a festival and together with the team we did a great job I think. All the people where really enthusiastic about our stage and came back the second day for more. People where standing in line for my body-paints all day and it was hard to catch a break. Let’s hope ‘Open Air’ will give even a bigger stage to ‘This Is Africa’ next year! Oh and the weather was a-ma-ziiinng!!
