Meet the team

Hi there, thanks for having an interest in us. We know it’s all about the artworks here, but nevertheless good to know that you took the time to check us out! We (Houke & Pauline) are running the website from Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Mattia is traveling the world (without flying) to visit the best art festivals around. So if you happen to be in Rotterdam, feel free to let us know so we can have a drink and if you happen to organize an art event, don’t forget to invite us!
