Welcome to MZDEZIGN, welcome to my website. I am a Dutch graphic designer, web designer and a self-taught digital artist and musician born and raised in the eastern part of the Netherlands. My work consists mainly of paintings for which I find inspiration in music, movies and icons from pop culture of all times.
The powerful, sensual or naked female body is a grateful subject in my work. The soft elegance, the pure beauty and the almost divine power of women inspire me. I also find inspiration in unspoiled nature, wild animals and the man-made urban jungle. For me painting is capturing beauty in any form and expressing that beauty in a colorful and expressive way.
I don’t paint traditionally with brush and paint, but I use various software and a drawing-tablet to make my paintings. Often I have asked myself whether a digital painting is “real” art. But I can’t find any other answer than: why not? For me, art is everything a human being knows how to create, with which he or she can touch another human being or take him or her into his or her story and world of experience.
In my music I am more inclined towards jazz, soul and funk. As a saxophonist and arranger, these are music styles that suit me very well. I am also able to convey my feelings through these musical styles through my instrument.
