Together with my love Koen Verpaalen we got asked to create 'our story of Africa' for restaurant Pllek Amsterdam. This resulted in the exhibition 'Angola Cuia Bue', meaning 'Angola is Really Cool'. We've also made a little zine about our life in Angola. All of the artworks & the zine are still for sale. You can contact me for more information.
Expo Pllek, Collages, Photos, Mixed-media.
a land in sub-saharan Africa.
a country of contrasts:
big new buildings in Luanda
candongueiros moving around,
street salesman in the traffic jam
and ladies carrying the world on their heads
wth endlessly undiscovered nature
from miles of beaches ,tropical rainforests
to deserts and highlands
where clay huts in villages stand strong
Angola is always different
coloured and shaped by its people
who have swag and stle
like a teengaer, exploring
leaving years of war and struggles
the population - still very young
but with a positive spirit and aim to move forward
