Reflections

Jan's direct involvement and feeling with the people of his own surroundings as well as the wider world, is the source of inspiration for his painting. In his personal work as well as the paintings he makes with others, he consistently shows people as they are, no matter who he or she is (colour, race, homo, hetero, rich poor etc.).
