As intuitive, I relate to ancestral knowledge to practice the arts. Social research allows me to promote agency, civic participation and dialogues. Currently, I am being mentored by Francisco Guevara.

To develop a sustainable practice, I focus on art systems in Latin America. My artistic intentions are based on a psychological through which my process and I act. We reflect on the relationship between violence and strength. Our discourse is based on I KROYWARA I: I walk with you, you walk with I. Thus, distribution of knowledge through symbolic systems, to transform power relations. Especially creative writing my space-time, to reflect on socio-political issues. Art installations are my conversations on an external level. On the other hand, painting, paper-cutting and drawing depict my internal dialogues. 

Through DEAM Advisory LLC, I have been involved with design and development of creative concepts for organizations. DEAM also guided and supported several firms in Suriname with management system certification. As chairman of Education & Art Foundation, I focused on youth empowerment. Although educated as a civil technical engineer, I have considered myself a social worker in promoting the arts. Since 2009, my mission has been: to demonstrate social practice by serving business, social and cultural goals. 

Generally, my aim is to convert interactions with others – which can also lead to pragmatic, emotional and ethical tensions – into documents with innovative and imaginative potentials.
