Every once in a while, I get nice mail from inspiring folks. The other day, the great Levi van Veluw wrote in a very short and Dutch manner:
“Want to let you know that I will present new work at Art Rotterdam.
Including a large fiberglass sculpture (2,5 meter).
I hope you have time to visit the exhibition.”
Of course I neither have time nor money to go visit, Levi, but I’ll introduce your work to my beloved readers – in Holland and all over this glorious interweb.

Hoevelaken-born Levi van Veluw has a somewhat unhealthy artistic obsession with his face.
But maybe we’d all paint, plaster and glue stuff on our faces if we’d look like Patrick Bateman. Hell, I definitely would
do such incredible naughtiness to my own face!
From ballpoint pens to felt and hair, Levi has decorated and adorned his angelic face in the most exquisite microcosmic manner and documented the process in ever so minute and tidy semi-profile photographs.

His work is proof that the human body is indeed the most exciting canvas and we look forward to seeing ever more facescapes develop on Levi‘s skin.
So if you, gentle reader, happen to be in Rotterdam right now, don’t miss seeing some of his new works at Art Rotterdam. Details below.

In other most urgent news, it’s my birthday soon – my thirtieth, nonetheless – and yes, you may indeed buy me presents again because you love me:
I still haven’t received that iPhone you promised me for Christmas, nor world peace, for what it’s worth.
