MAX VAN KOETSVELD VAN ANKEREN (24)
As a kid I grew up in, and around, Amsterdam: the place where my heart will always be. Growing up there gave me the freedom as an exploring kid to become who I am now, and provided the soil for my creative seed to turn into a weird and unique flower that’s ready to blossom. During this process I had lots of creative hobbies and pretty much explored every form of artistic expression, only to select a few of my favourites to fully develop into their full potentials. I participated in two very interesting internships at an advertising agency and a video production company in Amsterdam that made it possible to do so.
Today the development of my creative explorations manifested into a life I could only dream of as a kid. I see myself as an audio-visual artist, who is currently finding out how to combine my artistic strengths with a more practical and progressive way of thinking in order to make my business lucrative so I can keep doing what I do after my graduation. I feel truly blessed with all the opportunities I got, to be able to figure this out while living in paradise: Bali, Indonesia. This place already feels like my second home, and is the perfect place for me right now to grow artistically, mentally, spiritually, professionally and financially.
I can only dream of all the beautiful possibilities that life still has to offer for me, but I’m certainly doing everything that I can to fulfil my greatest wishes and life goals. One of them being that I strive to become a well-known and inspiring artist, who eventually will be able to make a good living from producing non commercialised art. I want to do this while travelling around the world, experiencing as much of the wonders this universe provides, and working with as many interestingly creative likeminded people as I can. All of this while, of course: enjoying the ride.
