PAINT KEEPS ME GOING
My name is 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. Through my work, I am seen for who I truly am, which is what any human being craves.
