All our models are very exclusive and special because they are no model (or wanna be models) in real life. They are beautiful, creative, outspoken, unique, genuine, artistic an definitely not mainstream in how they look and what they pursuit. This is why we like to introduce them to you.
Wednesday July 12th we have a new photoshoot, this time with real-life model Daan .
Daan van de Konijnenburg is a creative cameleon. He makes music, human interest documentaries (Daan Ontmoet) and is a experienced expert on mental health issues offering his assistance to the Dutch GGz to contribute to a more positive perception on this issue. Besides all that he’s father of two boys. Daan is a cheerful and energetic person with a spark.
Model Mirthe, she was our previous Model. Mirthe (Langelaan) is in daily life is an collegue artist and we share a creative past with loads of creative adventures. We were next door neighbors at DOAS (institute for art and cultural exchange, Zwolle) and together we collaborated in curating several exhibitions like: Krijtstreep & Canvas & DOAS in volle Bloei, participated in duo and group exhibitions at City Museum Zwolle (twice), I Love Candy @ Kop, Breda and many more and developed and created our own artprojects like: Duo Ongezoet . Besides all that she creates beautiful and intriguing art. Rythm, repetition and ordening are three words that comes to mind. I use to say, a monks work for all that patience that goes into the artwork before it is declared finished. But when it is finished a dazzling pattern of repeating shapes dots, stripes or other unexpected materials as toothbrushes is a small mind blowing experience. besides all that she’s partner of Daan a caring mother and a house painter @ Mirthe Schildert
Model Davey (Van der Velden) is in daily Life student @ Landstede Media & design and devoted intern @Atelier007/ Artwearness . Besides all that he’s a music lover & maker and a creative workforce for any company. To be honest he was a stand in model, but seems quiet good at the job! Instant model Davey.
Model Ryan van Dijk is asked to model for Artwearness by Intern and temporary backbone of Artwearness, Ellen Bloemhof. Ryanne is a student @ Landstede Media & design, Zwolle. And a natural model.
Model Sebastiaan, a young musician with cool mindset, great looks and big hair. Sebastiaan is studying Jazz & Pop (Bass) @ Artez conservatorium, Zwolle. His love for music is fed and cultivated right at home by his jazz and funk lovin’ parents (Daddy). At this present time he’s playing in the band Chayah . Keep track of this promising talent!
Model Kay (van Scheijndel) is the 19 year old son of Erik van Scheijndel, my partner in life and in crime (@ artwearness) and a natural when it comes to modeling. At this present moment Kay is in between educations but starting @ HBO Windesheim, Zwolle @ the School of journalism coming semester. In the meanwhile he’s settling and shaping his life, has a place of his own since autumn 2016 and several jobs. He’s a self made man! Besides all that he’s got the looks of his daddy and the swag of a cool rap star, so all ingredients to be a perfect Artwearness model.
I asked model Sindey Faneyte for a special photoshoot aside from the regular shoots. We created a special product: A Zwolle promotion shirt named: ‘Zwolle, hemels & (g)astronomisch’ (Zwolle heavenly and (g)astronomical’) This shirt is market @ Made in Zwolle. Sindey was at the time a Cibap Student @ friend and colleague artist Chantal de Wolde. Before that she studied at David Bade Buena Vista art school Curacao and was willing to help us out. She’s an gifted young artist and a very nice personality.
Last but certainly not least, a cliff hanger, because this ultra cool model don’t wish to reveal her identity. We do respect that. So we won’t. But this model is a style icon. She is Grace Jones meets Skin. Graceful and sturdy at the same time. Does everything with the largest smile on her face like it’s no bother at all. She’s a dear friend and someone to admire and the information stops here, so this item has a sudden death.
