Amsterdam Artists, 20 Portraits

text roberto voorbij

Twenty photo-shoots and twenty interviews with a diverse group of creatives, one-by-one with the specification on the curriculum vitae ‘lives and works in Amsterdam’. The book in the making ‘Amsterdam Artists, 20 Portraits’ gives the reader / viewer a personal look into the lives, personal connection to Amsterdam, the vision of society of this mixed group of metropolitan artists, ranging from writer to visual artist, from dj to designer. A selection of the names which have their say: street artist Laser 3.14, dj DJ ISIS, designers Miktor & Molf, visual artist Robert Overweg, filmmaker Catarina Neves Ricci, actor/writer Johan Fretz and furniture designer Tuomas Markunpoika.

I myself am also part of this project, as one of the portrayed. Through the crowdfunding website (in Dutch) ‘voor de kunst’ is it still possible to contribute to this special project. Especially in these times of culture cuts arts patronage is a must!

‘Amsterdam Artists, 20 Portraits’ is an initiative of ‘Artists Not Armies’ Alexander Tempel, interviews Joni Hayen, photography Ralf Mitsch.
