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. In the end it reflects the character of our time.Go to work
That's why the paintings "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 special" that could cope with our fast 24/7 life. Where a constant flow of information grew continuously more and became increasingly important. So he created "NOSYBIRDS®". Colorful and open minded characters who simply take time to pause so now and then. Just to take a closer look to see things around us in a different way and from different perspectives. Away from our daily hassles. It brought unconventional and joyful paintings to point out how things look when it is seen in an independent way: "ART OF NOSYBIRDS".
NOSYBIRDS® and it's story behind appealed to more and more people. So at the beginning of this year Jos introduced the new and mesmerizing 3D Nosybirds. Three versions of colorful 5 inch (14 cm) figurines, about the same size as a robin. And to give the 3D NOSYBIRDS® extra attention, he gave them their own homesite where you can buy them directly: www.nosybirds.com.
