Washing instructions

The following applies to all Pixelpolly clothes: wash at 30 degrees or colder. By hand, or in a washing bag in the machine. use a delicate wash program and mild soap (wool/silk). All knitwear: dry flat. 

You don't have to wash wool! Wool has the fantastic property that it cleans itself, just hanging it out overnight. (outside or in the bathroom when you shower) is sufficient. If you still want to wash it, wash cold by hand, dry flat.

To prevent microplastic waste, I use the laundry bag from Guppy Friend, which can be purchased at several eco shops. Let's make this world a better place!


Nice that you are interested in my world of mystic shades, funky colors, and crazy lines. I am a Dutch painter, textile artist, and upcycler.

Since 1990 I am working with paint, charcoal, and graphite.

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 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, and 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.”

The textile sculpture was exhibited on a bed. The bed was decorated with text & drawings, accomplished by students from the St. Joost Academie Breda.

It was holding the book " Art & Lies" by Jeanette Winterson. Besides the bed, an old overhead projector was placed with the intro text from this book. It explains the alienation and the timelessness of art:

The nature of a work of art

is not to be a part, nor yet

a copy of the real world,

but a world in itself,

independent, complete, autonomous

and to possess it fully

you must enter that world,

conform to its laws,

and ignore for the time the beliefs,

aims, and particular conditions

which belongs to you

in the other world of reality.

(Oxford lectures on poetry: Professor Bradley in the year 1901)




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!
