biography

Tymon de Laat is a visual artist and muralist working and living in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The port city bristles with life and creativity, informing his unique urban contemporary art, as he literally leaves his mark upon the city itself. However, it is not just his hometown that is an essential part of his work, as de Laat’s work is greatly influenced by his deep love and appreciation for Latin-American, and particularly Mexican culture.

After graduating from the Willem de Kooning Academy de Laat  decided to travel to Latin America. It turned out to be a year-long journey living on a relatively sparse travel budget, this made him realize he didn’t actually need much funds to feel fulfilled. Rather, he found joy in his interaction with locals.

When he eventually came back to Rotterdam, he could do little else but pay tribute to Latin America, the part of the world that gave him so many insights about how he saw himself, the world at large, and the art wanted to create. De Laat started painting murals and canvases, often based on his own photographs of the people he met during his travels. He exaggerates the natural lines in their faces, and fills the spaces that appear between those swirling lines with swaths of vivid color. The linework and color palette he applies in that way, are a means of translating his memories of Latin America to visual imagery. The food, the architecture, the clothes, and particularly his respect for the culture of indigenous peoples; it’s all in there, as de Laat transitions it over to enliven drab Western concrete.

Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

- Someone does a search and winds up at melikepainting.com.

- They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

- And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

- Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

- There they go.

This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

But you CAN fix that.

Good day,

My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

What for?

Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with melikepainting.com definitely stands out.

It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out melikepainting.com.

Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.

one of the most important things we need to value is nature because it is the most important blessing of satin god if we can not appreciate it can be lost all satin so we can and unite to appreciate nature
hi, sir, I want you to know that the importance of cleanliness is one of the important things we should do in the world because many people today are just where they are going to waste their time so the world is full of brilliance and severely diseased for future pursuits

Ik bel morgen Marcel even.

Groeten,
