Copieright Paintlab
As a former technical advisor of Royal Talens I have knowledge to share so since January 2020 I started a platform for painters to share knowledge about paints, pigments and binders etc. I give short courses about different topics in artist materials.
For more information see:

Punch! The smallest exhibition space in Amsterdam. Since January 2020 I have my studio in a former boxing studio in Amsterdam Osdorp. In a small cube that was used as office I program solo-exhibitions. Every two weeks an opening. Short but powerful, like a punch!
Since April 2023 Punch! has moved to Haarlem and transformed into a window gallery . Still with relevant art and short and powerfull shows.
For more information see:

Publishing a pamphlet on painting: PRESENTeert.
The magazine is printed in mimeography print (stencil druk) and the first issue was launched in December 2009. Last issue (#14) appeared in November 2014.
