Jean-Paul Opperman (Netherlands, 1980)
I never had any particulair goal with my art or my photography, I rather consider it to be a way to speak and learn the visual language of life. Drawing and painting are like communicating my daily inspirations, thoughts and views on a more abstract level. On the other hand photography is like my library of living. I see, find and collect while my visual vocubulairy grows with new input every day.
