In 2015 me and two friends went on a trip through Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. This trip is still hugely influencing my work. The scenes I paint and draw are still often based on what I saw in for example the Amazon or the Andes.
For about three weeks we have been in the Amazon. Starting off in Coca, Ecuador and ending in Iquitos, Peru. We traveled by boat. We slept in our hammocks or in tents on the jungle floor. We fished in the rivers, chased monkeys through the jungle on our bare feet and did an Ayahuasca trip with a Shaman.
During all this, I kept a diary. The texts are in Dutch, but luckily the images exceed the boundaries of language.
