March 2020:
I made this calligram for the Rijksmuseum’s international design competition 2020.

My calligram is based on the painted portrait of Willem van Oranje – made in 1570 by Adriaen Thomasz Key.

Willem van Oranje – William of Orange (24 April 1533 – 10 July 1584) was the main leader of the Dutch Revolt against the Spanish Habsburgs that set off the Eighty Years’ War (1568–1648) and resulted in the formal independence of the United Provinces in 1581. He was born into the House of Nassau as Count of Nassau -Dillenburg.

He became Prince of Orange in 1544 and is thereby the founder of the Orange-Nassau branch and the ancestor of the monarchy of the Netherlands.

Made for a young family. Four hearts, with four names. Mother, Father and two sons.
Each heart is filled with their own name. The dates are special dates for the parents.

*

The majestic lion is made by writing only the name Lia in it, more then 700 times. The result is a very detailed caligram, size 12 x 12 cm. Size after framing 25 x 25 cm.

*

The biggest effect is to use white or cream colored paper with black text. But there are exceptions, such as the two hearts with names of loved ones. In this, black combined with red, also has a beautiful and stylish effect.

*

By only writing hundreds of times the word ‘golondrina’ (Spanish for swallow) I created this image of birds on a wire. When finished, the image was 25 x 50 cm. The word golondrina was written more than 2000 times.

This whale for baptism is made by only writing the name of Marlon – in black and a few in blue. After finishing the Calligram was 12 x 12 cm. Framed with a blue passepartout, total size 25 x 25 cm.
