Autodidact, videomaker and visual artist. He worked at the glass-ovens in Mol for twenty years. Today he makes video’s and artprojects with homeless and unemployed people and migrants, often in collaboration with schools. He uses everyday consumption materials for his work, is against intellectualism: he wants to make positive critical art that confronts the spectator with what happens in the media and historical failures.
