Welcome to my art travels blog! I'm Simon, and I've been in love with art and architecture all my life. I have been living in Rotterdam for the past 20 years. This city is known for its dynamic blend of cultures, public art displays, and modern architecture, and I want to inspire you
to explore and discover all that the art world has to offer.
As someone with a Masters degree in architecture and experience working at the Willem de Kooning Academy, the Government and different enterprises, I have a special connection to art and architecture.
My travels have taken me to Japan, where I founded in Rotterdam the Japanese Foundation Shofukan
, and to New Eastern Europe, where I gained a deeper understanding of contemporary art and culture.
In my current government job
, I work to empower the Dutch creative industries, including digital design, game industry, architecture, circular design and sustainable fashion. The Netherlands has a reputation for producing some of the best creative talent in the world, and I'm excited to share that with you.
I believe that art can bring people together and make the world a better place. If you're interested in collaborating or connecting with other passionate collectors, artists, and communities, don't hesitate to reach out. Let's make it happen!
