Melkweg and Paradiso with Def P
Right after the corona lockdown was announced in The Netherlands, I joined forces with Def P to celebrate Paradiso and Melkweg; two of the city’s most iconic music venues, which were facing months of silence because of the virus.
We collaborated in true Corona fashion - collaborating apart together. I started by painting the Paradiso building, Def P did the same with the Melkweg and during the painting process we exchanged the paintings several times. The two works were finished during a live stream event from Paradiso on April 24th. It felt pretty weird to be the main act in an empty Paradiso on a Friday night...
It was our first collaboration after our painting for the cover of ‘Geendagsvlieg’, the 1997 record from Def P’s notorious rap group Osdorp Posse.
