K_Van (1968) uses visual arts to take you intimately close to his world of visions resulting from a search beyond the recognisable elements of the world as we know it. By the age of sixteen he had lived on three different continents, pingponged seven times between languages and was averaging a new school once a year. These frequent changes in different environments and cultures resulted in a visual collection of images and feelings that inspire him in his artistic work. In 1987 he started taking art classes in The Hague the Netherlands, followed by de Vrije Academie for plastic arts and in 2000 was awarded a scholarship for the Burren College of Art in Ireland.
