Entry Description:

I have worked at this project from 2012 till now. My fresco's tell a
story, not a story of a single person, but a story of our world. Our
old world and our new world, blended together. It was a lot of
work to create them, but only with love for our world, fresco's,
photography and photoshop I was able to re-create the glory of
old fresco's again...
