Osmel Herman (Willemstad, Curaçao, 1974) creates colorful drawings and paintings that are narratives about his birth island; Curaçao. Osmel: ‘Painting makes me feel at peace and happy. When I create a painting, I will first start with creating lines and then suddenly figures arise within these lines and when I am finished I will see that it has become a celebration.’
During the Outsiderwear-project Osmel became inspired by all his fellow artists from the Outsider Art Gallery. These artists started to make clothes and he felt inspired by that so he started to draw on his own clothing; varying from shoes to caps; every clothing item became an artistic piece. Patta, on their turn became inspired by Osmel and they offered him old stock to work on. Now Osmel will gain his own well deserved spot on the festival as well.
