With his respectful, sensual and sometimes provocative artworks, Edwin wants to bring you in motion to discover and develop yourself. He wants to encourage you to stay close to your heart and soul: your essence. Because it is without garment, make-up and nick-nack, for him the female nude symbolises your pure self. To quote Michelangelo: “What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?” While embracing your unique self, he is convinced that this results in your happiness and success.

He realises that his artworks may mirror you with your own perception and vulnerability, and he does this consciously, to stimulate self-reflection. It is about how you look at yourself, at how you define beauty, and also how you interact with people and the world around you. His artworks reflect all features that you may recognise in yourself: from introvert, beautiful, extravert, shy, energetic till sensual, mysterious, sexy, seductive and decisive.
According to Edwin, beauty is about how you look towards yourself and your total appearance as personality. When you are close to your heart, you are the most happy, attractive and successful. This is the secret of true beauty, because that shines strongly through your own physical shapes! Yes, indeed, with all your curves and all your edges. This is what Edwin wants: bringing you in motion to be your pure and beautiful self, your naked truth: the nude as a symbol for your inner beauty!
