Mmm. That's why the paintings which have the title "OTHER STORIES" show moments, places, situations and... other stories about expected and unexpected changes. They are imaginative, realistic and are sometimes created with “what if’s”. No story is the same.
"OTHER STORIES" include the new serie "Flowers". The paintings are all inspired by Dutch Master and old family Georgius van Os (19th century). The original work of Georgius van Os is permanently shown in The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Because of the family relation with Georgius van Os, The Rijksmuseum was happy to consult Jos on this reinterpretation, which he very much appreciated. This helped him to rejuvenate his work to enjoy it in a lighthearted way. Talking about stories...
About 10 years ago Jos created an animated character. Actually, he was searching for "something" that looked around and could see a lot at the same time. A seemingly simple character with a sharp eye, looking without prejudice. That's a lot. It was during a period when he felt that so many things started to change enormously. Even more than that, to accelerate. In an environment full of information. All those changes had one similarity. They all started with almost unnoticed smaller changes. So this character should be a figure that stays tuned and look around what’s going on. And enjoys it really because a lot is going on.
What he draw was not one, but a group of birds. He called them "NOSYBIRDS®" and gave them a true and simple motto " What have you seen today?". It brought unconventional and joyful paintings to point out how things look when it is seen on an independent way: "ART OF NOSYBIRDS".

Our climate and daily weather are changing rapidly. There is a constant discussion about the development of the world’s climate. It affects all of us. Jos wanted to translate this phenomena in art that really stands out, because it had to attract a good portion of attention. That's why "ART OF WEATHERMAP" paintings are inspired by data from the largest international climate institutes. The colorful paintings ask positive attention for climate change by illustrating extreme weather situations. Each Weathermap has its own story.Go to work
