|Since it's a cold and grey day today I chose an image to remember the summer...|
I'm a painter/designer/facepainter/illustrator and photographer from The Netherlands. Born 25th of March 1965. Husband, father of two kids, walking two dogs every day three to four times.
www.facebook.com/pavalo2 is where you can find me on FACEBOOK
I use both traditional and digital media. Now and then I take a commission in paintings, art- and portraitphotography, productphotography, conceptdeveloping, stationary design, textiledesign, styledevelopement for theather/ and dance events and anything that sparks my inspiration and creativity.
I feel I've reached some degree of expertise but are always hungry and eager to get to a higher level at any field. There is still much to gain when i take a look at what many fellow DA member are capable of. Though i can be enchanted by my own creations , it usually lasts only a short period when I start to long for making new work. It's a cruel yet endlesslessly captivating talent I pursue to master. I think many of you would agree there with me or the other way round. When read about artist that paved ways in earlier times I start to recognize more and more what they try to convey to the world. Painting is such sweet sorrow
I'm widely interested in many artforms, science and nature, philosophy and psychology and get my inspiration from people, music, stories&books, other art and life's experiences. I'm a big fan of having humour in my creations though it doesn't always show.
I hope to create art with some degree of depth and integrity. And to now and then, move and/or inspire the observer.
Apart from that I try to hand out advice to anyone who needs it. And I'm also happy to receive it, if someone has good indea's for me.
A few years ago I started to educate myself in facepainting. It has developed to a stage where I get many invitations to perform at parties and events. Since my children a getting a bit more selfsupporting, I'm getting more time to create and grow.
Since 2 years I'm working closely together with someone with whom I share both creativity and collegiality.
Apart from that I'm building a network of people whom I trust and admire for their expertise in many fields such as photography and dressmaking. Some of them are here too.
