Visual artist


In April 2018 I worked as an artist in residence at Studio Kura, Itoshima, Japan. And I was very lucky, because when I arrived cherry blossoms were still everywhere. So the first photos I selected for my prints had a lot of cherry blossoms in it.


During my residency I made a series of painted prints. The only thing was that I wasn’t sure of the quality of the prints.


The colors I picked blindfolded from Haishoku Soukan (a dictionary of color combinations) originated by Sanzo Wada. This book I’ve been working with for quite some time now and it’s been one of the reasons I wanted to go to Japan.


After several trials we finally managed to remade these prints in high quality archival pigmentprints on Canson Infinity Lustre mounted on dibond and with a protective lamination.


They come in a cute small size of 20×30 cm and a limited edition of 3.


Because every print is painted by hand, every piece is unique and signed and numbered on the back.


The prints have a wall-mount on the back, so you can easily hang them.
