Between the fall of 2023 and spring of 2024 I have an exhibition at Cloud Gallery in Amsterdam.
Super special to - for the first time - see an overview of my works. Love that it's at Cloud too since it's such a nice spot with a true affection for Japan as well. You just have to taste their matcha to tell.
The name of the show was taken from my favourite colours to work with. Which accidentally also tie in a bit of my Dutch heritage with my love for Japan.

Bianca Toeps asked me to design the cover for her book "Deze autist ging naar Japan". A fun and honest account of how Bianca decided to move to Japan...in the middle of a global pandemic.
English version to be released soon!
I loved designing the imaginative cover and also 2 sets of maps to accompany the places mentioned in her stories.
Deze autist ging naar Japan
In June I did a pop-up event in UNIQLO Amsterdam. For the "discover your locals" campaign we realised an ANO Studio mini shop selling art prints, paper goods and enamel pins.
Bringing some Amsterdam made, Japan inspired goodies to the shop floor.
