I’m just speechless…there is aven a video of that craziness… J’adore!

Well, Levi van Veluw, Arnhem, the Netherlands  has an amazing experience for his 25 years, took part in more than 50 exhibitions, has numerous awards and publications, and has already worked as an art teacher at the photography department of Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam.

““I don’t even have a concept beyond the medium before I start,” van Veluw explains. “I just stand in front of a mirror.” In the past few years, the artist has gone well beyond using simple ink to frame his face. He’s explored everything from yogurt, carpet strips, and pebbles to model-landscape supplies with a miniature train running on a track around his head. Van Veluw is very precise about the materials he uses. “I like to pick things that are quite ordinary, like pieces of carpet or pen,” he says. “They don’t have any associations yet, so you can rip them out of context. That makes the transformations easier.” Van Veluw has also been toying lately with backlight foil, electronic ink, and video. It’s hard to know if his work is self-expression, self-erasure, or if it just gives him the chance to do a lot of crazy things with his face.”

Well, check out his other work..I’m still speechless =D
