Art Description

Drawing: Marker, Pencil, Gouache and Acrylic on Paper.

On my daily ride through the city I often pass by the hookers on the Singel or Spuistraat in Amsterdam. Having just finished breakfast it feels surreal these women actually are ready for their working day. Men pass by, some enter, some stay to have a closer look. It gives me an uncomfortable feeling. I wouldn't be up to it, earning my money this way. And yet here they are, day in day out, soldiering on. Hopefully enjoying it. There is a feeling of admiration in me for these women, has been there ever since I saw them for the first time.
