Never be Clever

Never be Clever is a  portrait of famed Dutch singer/songwriter/painter Herman Brood. He distinguished himself by his distinctive voice and musical diversity. He was the Dutch embodiment of Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll.  Brood sang with the Dutch band Wild Romance and was active as an artpainter.  He died tragically by commiting suicide 4 months before his 55th birthday.

The mosaic Never be Clever blends his portrait with 5 of his colourful own paintings, translated into mosaics :  “Me” , “Contrabas” ,”Psychokiller”, “Purple Haze ” and “All Stars”

I specialize in portraits. I studied extensively and took several courses to make portraits in mosaic. This one is a modern portrait, but because I master all techniques, a copy of a Roman or Byzantine portrait is also possible.  A portrait is something valuable, a timeless reminder of a loved one. You can also have a portrait made of a favorite singer or an athlete. A portrayal of a Roman goddess adds style and class to your interior. Please contact me for more information.
