In 2001 I moved to Costa Rica to start my own Lounge/restaurant Shake Joe’s, designed and build it from scratch (a childhood dream). What eventually became one of the most popular destinations in the Pacific. I managed the restaurant for ten years, until in 2011 I decided that it was time for a change and returned to Netherlands.
Here I started with my new passion, painting. Which I do with airbrush, acrylic and oilpaint on Canvas. Since then I have more than 100 paintings created and participated in many exhibitions in the Netherlands and Israel (where I’ve lived another year in 2014).
In February 2016 I had a gigantic painting made for the departure of the Dutch rapper Tony Scott in Paradiso (Amsterdam). This painting was also used for his retirement CD. This same year I started another challenge and that is body-painting. I have already been on multiple bodypaint events in Amsterdam, Belgium. San Francisco and New York.
For the time being I continue my passion creating more paintings for now and for the future

Body Paint art
In every person hides an artist or a model and therefore its very important to be able to express our selves.
It does not really matter if you are pretty, good looking, really smart or if you are the best artist and studied for years on an art school, In Bodypainting everybody can find a way to express themselves and become the human canvas or the painter of it.
The only thing we promote is freedom of expression no matter what. Instead of other organizations we are a non political and a no statements making Art group.
We don’t protest, we don’t discriminate, we are not nudist, not sexual. But we recognize that every human being is born naked and we should appreciate the fact that our bodies are worth to be showed and can be pieces of Art.
The so called HUMAN CANVAS.
