Solko in Witte de With

This week one 'temporary' painting of me will be exposed in gallery de Aanschouw 80b in the Witte de Withstraat in Rotterdam. This street near the Boymans Museum is the main art-street of Rotterdam, with galleries and cultural institutes in between bars and grand-cafe's.
The painting I have done is a project of Daan, who asks a different artist every month to paint a new painting over the existing one on the same canvas. This layer, my painting, is the 38th layer and the project has been going on for almost five years now. Due to the temporary nature of the painting and the place it is being shown, I wanted to experiment a little more and get noticed, so for the first time I included some foul language in my painting.
