His work brings drawing, animation, wallpaper, shadow and pre-cinema technics such a kaleidoscopes and Phenakistiscopes together around a central theme and puts the art of drawing in a wider perceptive. By initiating all kinds of projects, such as a ongoing book sequel  about drawing  published with american publisher J&L books, he has become a expert in the field of drawing. 

 

Returning themes in  his work  are, conflicting economical & emotional values, micro economics such as recycling and deposits and the smallest monetary value represented by the  1 cent coins. One of the projects during his stay in China is researching the ancient art of shadow theater. This will lead to collaborations and performances. He also plays the trumpet in the improvised group OORBEEK and teaches at Rietveld academy also based in Amsterdam.
