I guess we can blame it on the nice weather, but somehow now every weekend some nice artsy events are going on. In half an hour I’ll leave to Ruigoord – a squatted artists village near Amsterdam … they even got a squatted church. There is the All is One festival today (12th of June) and tomorrow. Not sure what to expect – but 100 artists will be there, so lots to see. I’ll probably do portraits in a tent called “The happy world”.
Until 3 o’clock this morning I was hanging up pictures in a squat in Amsterdam-Noord. There is the “Art for Art’s Sake” event. It started also today, but is continuing next weekend (19th and 20th of June). I will be there at least all next weekend – I think about using oil paint to paint some objects (they have loads of nice rusty machinery there). Or a model if I can find a victim .
And last week was another sketchmeet – a group of young concept artists running around in Haarlem and drawing. Was a lot of fun. Here are some results of the collaborations we did. Only the sketches I’ve kept – there was loads more of course.
