In the last couple of days Super-A and i were working in Heerlen for the Mural festival. Heerlen has a lot of mines that were closed in the seventies, but before that the mine workers took a little bird underground to see if there were any gas leaks.
When the bird passed out or died they knew they had to leave. A kind of sad story, so we covered up the gas mask a bit with more cheerful work. Thanks to everybody who came by and a big thank you to the people from the Mural festival for having us and take care of everything.
There’s a update in the ‘Store’ with some drawings that are available.
Here is the screen print for The Jaunt, i decided to print it in blue tones, because of the amazing tile work at the Sao Bente station in Porto.
So i’m back from Porto, for The Jaunt project, now i will work on the print. You can see a small recap from the trip Here on The Jaunt tumblr.
Small work titled ‘Deep pond’ 40×50 cm.
You can pre-order the print that i’m going to make during my trip to Porto now. The print i’m going to make will be in the line of my drawings, but with influences that the city of Porto will give me. So this is your chance to order it.
The second trip of The Jaunt is taking us to the beautiful coastlines of the city Porto in Portugal. While the northern provinces of Portugal are known for it’s production of the Port wine, the coastline is widely known for it’s superb surfing opportunities. Meanwhile the most exciting and interesting contemporary art and illustration is largely coming from Porto, instead of the capital Lisbon.
The Dutch artist Collin van der Sluijs is based in Maastricht, in the most southern part of the Netherlands. For his trip he will travel down south even more to enjoy the atmosphere, culture and people of Porto. Collin’s work is best described as the personal pleasures and struggles in his daily life, translated to his own visual language. It will be very interesting to see what he comes back with after spending five days in Porto, and how this translate to his art.
