Coen Blankwaard observes and reflects. He records every event in his daily life in small black notebooks. Illustrated diaries, supplemented with individual texts. Impressions and inspiration, travel stories, dreams and plans. In the form of sketches. Purely personal.
The paintings by Coen Blankwaard are the reflection of his day-to-day concerns, distilled from illustrated notes. He paints his diary, raw and unpolished. Emotions in colourful lines. The heart, the lips, the love of the Coen man – his self and alter ego.
