This world map is made up of 784 diamond shapes, each with the average colour of the area in question. However abstract the result may be, it is still possible to distinguish features: the Amazon, the Sahara, Greenland, the Mediterranean, the Himalayas. And of course the seven continents. The transitions between the panes have been slightly accentuated, creating a watercolour-like effect.

My work can be located in the border regions of photography, painting and computer visuals. With my company 3Develop I do work in commission but I use the same techniques, skills and software to make free work. I am originally an architect and I live in Rotterdam; for that reason the architecture of that city is a major (but not the only) source of inspiration. But also travel to countries like Iceland and Britain, or walks in the Netherlands, provide much material. Seeing and showing quality and beauty, that is what my work is about.
