Recent works on canvas, paper, print, assemblage, installation.
It was my first mescaline experience on my own in a hotel room. In 2006 I painted them over in acrylic after an ingestion and journey with Ayahuasca which colour patterns I tried to recreate.
Since 1989 I have visited South America and this rubric comprises my works in retrospect.
I designed a few witty 'postcards', which I may in due time exhibit or produce as postcards here,in the sacred city of Cuzco in Peru. PS.:They were created while smoking excellent grass. the works are being sold in as long as there is demand- Prints are sold in 1/1, you get a unique copy of that size for all of the digital pictures you choose. Different sizes are available upon request and accordingly will change in price. The postage cost to your home is included in the price.
Unfinished works or ideas, which I had not been able to finish abroad, got shape in Belgium.
I lived in Thailand, Nepal, India and traveled for brief spells in Laos, Cambodia, Sri Lanka where I showed my work that I made there.
Like many othere artists I have made quite a few portraits of myself, realistic, surreal, digital, photographic, and I´d like to show them here.

Printed in Peru in 2008 on a very limited edition of 75 divided over 3 designs.
In my career a great many works have never been returned or simply been stolen. Such was the case in 1984 in Brussels, Calcutta in 1996 and recently in 2001 just after September eleven in Toronto. If anyone should happen to recognize the works somewhere, let me know.
These design pieces were first produced in 2000 in Mahabalipuram village (known for its carvings in soap stone and marble). The very same year I moved to Kathmandu to have them cast by a blacksmith into brass pieces. Unfortunately, the original pieces in soap stone disappeared with the smith after the job was done.Some are signed at the back.
Refering to some countries' geopolitics from the past
A body of works inpspired by Che Guevara, still very much revered and more popular than ever before. He is omnipresent in South America and as important an icon as Jesus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nREOpfFv-0I
