This is my first wall and first time visiting in New york. What a city and what a ride! I want to give a big shout out to Joe, Warren and the whole Bushwick Collective crew for the invitation and to Dutch Culture USA for the connection to come and paint here. Also a big thanks goes out to Centrum Beeldende Kunst R’dam for the financial support in this project.

As some of you might already know I like to paint people in the places you least expect them. Here in NY I painted the portrait of Kharlox Piñeda. A colombian by birth, Dutch by nationality and living on Bonaire, a small island in the Caribbean. Last year i painted his daughter Isabel there and he was kind enough to let me take his photo in the meantime.

Also a big thanks to the many nice artists and photographers that made this week even more special. @kaotik954 @sepc_ @urbanruben @theartofgolden @ashleyhodderart @codyjamesny @coreypaneart @kms_crew @dannycortesnyc and many more. I look forward meeting you in the most unexpected of places around the world. Big love!

Back To Top

De Laat started painting murals and canvases, often based on his own photographs of the people he met during his travels. He exaggerates the natural lines in their faces, and fills the spaces that appear between those swirling lines with swaths of vivid color. The linework and color palette he applies in that way, are a means of translating his memories of Latin America to visual imagery. The food, the architecture, the clothes, and particularly his respect for the culture of indigenous peoples; it’s all in there, as de Laat transitions it over to enliven drab Western concrete.
