Yesterday I was at the opening of the exhibition: 'poëzie op een plankje',
with paintings (op een plankje) of Herman Schouwenburg
Herman makes small paintings of ordinairy people, he often adds text to them.
For this project they asked 7 poets to write a little poem to one of his paintings.
The exhibition is in Studio De Bakkerij in Rotterdam.
A very nice place, gallery and theatre.
I'm really impressed by the enormous amount of paintings Herman has made.
They often make me smile. All very recognizable people.
You can find his work on flickr
and on facebook
