Want to meet other young creatives and refresh your inspiration and energy levels? Then you must join us at PUP Amsterdam‘s Frai Flu on January 8th. This Sunday evening will bring us live music, creative foodies, a small market filled with affordable labels and photo exhibitions. All of this done by young talents. This is also a bit of self-promotion on my behalf since I will be exhibiting some of my street photos during this event which I of course think are very interesting and worthwhile to take a look at!

Discover your inner geek at this year's Discovery Festival

Discover your inner geek at this year’s Discovery Festival

I LOVE science! As a kid I grew up with technical toys, I grew my own crystals and mixed chemical potions in the kitchen. So every time I visited NEMO I couldn't be happier! A few years ago I revisited NEMO, but felt a little out of place. Probably because the average age of the visitors was about 20 years below my age. Luckily, NEMO has found a solution for uber-geeks like myself and is organizing the sixth edition of the Discovery Festival. This night festival combines science, art and music in NEMO's awesome surroundings. (..more)

An Affordable Street Art Revolution at 'Prints & the Revolution'

An Affordable Street Art Revolution at ‘Prints & the Revolution’

May 16, 2011 |  by  |  Art, Event

Occasionally when I visit an exhibition I find a piece of art that just calls out to me: "buy me, buy me". However, once I take a peek at the price tag this urge quickly fades away as my jaw drops to the floor. I then just shrug my shoulders and tell myself that someday, probably in the very far future, I will be able to buy a piece of art to brighten up my living room. That's why I was positively surprised when I visited the 'Prints & the Revolution' exhibition displaying incredibly affordable street art, pop art, graffiti art and other contemporary art. (..more)

Film lovers, pay attention to de Balie's new film night 'Cinema Egzotik'

Film lovers, pay attention to de Balie’s new film night ‘Cinema Egzotik’

May 10, 2011 |  by  |  Art, Event

I'm not an expert on films which occasionally causes me to get extremely confused when I have to choose one out of so many. Director Martin Koolhoven (Schnitzelparadijs, Oorlogswinter a.o.) and 'expert' Ronald Simons (, collection specialist at EYE film) have simplified this for me by organizing a monthly programme in the Balie called "Cinema Egzotik". During these nights, Martin Koolhoven and Ronald Simons alternately choose two of their favourite movies which are then projected off 35mm films. (..more)

Everyone probably has a certain view on the future of Amsterdam; will we be ‘driving’ flying cars, have telephones built into our heads or will it be similar to today’s Amsterdam? No one knows… And that’s exactly why Nuit Blanche is interested in your dreams for the future of our city. Everyone is more than welcome to attend the Nuit Blanche Soiree, an evening to brainstorm, network, help each other and hopefully walk away with a clear future image of Amsterdam. (..more)

I sometimes stumble upon a photographer whose work immediately gives me a positive case of the jitters. This time it was Ryan McGinley whose photos made me float into surreal worlds, where time seems insignificant and losing yourself is all that matters. (..more)
