Dear lovers of art and Amsterdam,
Time to introduce myself.
I am Dutch-Indonesian, born and raised in Amsterdam Noord. I have my roots in the fashion industry, then sold my company, worked a lot with creative people and since some years I am working at the University of Amsterdam. So much for fashion and science, but I always felt a warm place for art in my heart.
Isn’t it true that looking at a piece of art can give you the same kind of feeling as falling in love?
So when I started the Art Window midnightin.amsterdam, my heart opened up. I had the fantastic opportunity to meet wonderful artists, living or working in Amsterdam, and through some fine collabs midnightin.amsterdam had beautiful expo’s throughout the years. It is a cute little art window, a gallery in the lively De Pijp neighbourhood where many locals and tourists meet.
I truely believe that art should be for everyone, and midnightin.amsterdam shows you that this is possible.
So stroll by, have a look at all kinds of art in the window, and sense what a piece of beauty does to you by looking at it.
I will regularly blog about interesting stuff in Amsterdam like local art news, but also about the life as a local in De Pijp – anything that is GOOD food for thought.
See you soon!
Love, x Donna
