Klaas Lageweg (1978).
As a visual artist, I create murals and paintings. Art is my means to function autonomously in this society. Creating and developing causes me to experience conflict, euphoria, disappointment and pride. In other words: paint keeps me going. I follow my instincts and intuition – in doing so, I get to turn my ideas into reality. My focus is always on the end result. As I find inspiration in my day-to-day environment, my work generally contains an observational outlook. In combining seemingly opposing forms, such as realism, pixel art and abstractions, I am always pushing the boundaries.
