Workshop upcycling textiles denim Amsterdam

Hi!

Nice that you are interested in my world of mystic shades, funky colors, and crazy lines. I am a Dutch painter and upcycler. Since 1990 I am working with charcoal, graphite, and paint. Around the year 2000, I started also working on a computer with a pen tablet. Since 2010, I extended my work field with textiles and applied art. The characteristics of my work are artisanal, small scale, and neo-folkloristic.

The name Pixelpolly was invented in a spontaneous mood while working on the computer with timelines, filters, and effects. (Pixel Polly is a scattering, exploding effect in Adobe After Effects). Work has been shown at the linen museum Bussemakerhuis in Borne, the National Theater Hall in Utrecht (paintings & video walls), the Museum of resistance in Amsterdam (installation), at the Dutch sustainable Fashion Week & during the annual Museum Night of Rotterdam.

Art is anything that another human being created that transforms another human being.”

We have a duty, a calling, to create, to transform the lives of other people and meanwhile try to make a living out of it that supports us living our life as an artist.”

TRASH FASHION PUBLIC SPACE PERFORMANCE ARNHEM CENTRAL STATION

2017

June - workshop upcycling textile waste @ the Refugees Food Festival Final Party De Ruimte Amsterdam    

7 December - Street art performance Trash fashion.

Location the futuristic station Arnhem. 
This event was part of the traveling exhibition FACE TIME of foundation "Kunst en Cultuur in Beweging". The theme was Identity in society. de public space performance was supported by Awearness Fashion. Our waste-culture has a devastating effect on our planet earth. The garment industry is one of the biggest polluters, its impact on our globe is disastrous. It was an interactive performance staged by Eco-nymphs dressed up in trash-fashion: garments and accessories all made of waste textiles. The intention was to give the traveler a loving but sustainable message with sweet music, hand kisses, perfume, and eco-glitter. Warning: this show is not visible for those who don't believe in fairy tales!
