Introduction by Luke Sky
I have always had an interest in art from the time I was little. As a kid I was drawing constantly and going through art books and taking drawing classes. In highschool I learned to paint with spraycans and got completely obsessed with painting letters and making life size comic figures.
My art is very influenced by the many trips made during my childhood and traveling is still a passion of mine to this day. Visiting South America left a great impression on me as well as Japan, South Korea, Kyrgyztan and many other countries. Whilst I was studying for my bachelor degree in The Hague in 2014 I was selling drawings and paintings and doing commissioned paintings. Because I was getting a larger body of work, I rented a space and turned it into my gallery and had my first solo exhibition there.
During this period I learned many things about setting up exhibitions, selling and creating work, giving workshops and organizing events. I decided after this experience to dedicate my time to becoming a successful professional artist.
