BASBOEK conquering Rotterdam

Check the blog on trendbeheer about Artist Books in Rotterdam: BASBOEK is spotted three times! Photo: BASBOEK@The Dutch Photo Museum.



Today the panorama I made for second hand store Foenix was unveiled and many people came: thank you all! Director Arjin Jans gave an introduction and I gave a small lesson about landscapes. Text on the work translated: For two months Foenix put aside all the painted landscapes that came in for artist Bas Fontein. These landscapes - which previously offered many living rooms in Apeldoorn an alternative view - are brought together by the artist into one panorama. A new landscape is created with seascapes, farms, forests and winter scenes; without beginning or end.’ I found pictures of the event on the twitter account from Dutch political party ‘Green Left’, other pics are from Marchien de Vries, Adèle Reiss, Tada Projecten and the black and white ones are from StrangeArt (Roelof Rump).

This Saterday at 14:00 PANORAMA FOENIX opens at Aruba 6 in Apeldoorn. It’s a new work in collaboration with second hand store Foenix. Hope to see you there !


Good sales @ InBAF

During Art Rotterdam BASBOEK was at InBAF and had good sales at a great (maybe a little cold) location. Many thanks to Chantal Rens of PANTOFLE BOOKS who also represented BASBOEK Thursday and Friday.



Coming week BASBOEK will be at InBAF: the International Book Art Fair during Art Rotterdam. You can find us at Fenixloods1, near the Dutch Photo Museum. I will be present Wednesday, Saterday and Sunday. The other days Chantal Rens of PANTOFLE BOOKS will also represent BASBOEK.



These days in Januari remind me of Koppermaandag, a Dutch traditional day for print makers. Last year I was commissioned to make one with Ingeborg Scheffers. Photo from the Meppeler News Paper.
