Having featured Niels Shoe Meulman’s calligraphy in 2012 and 2013, it seems like a good time to check up on the artist. This year he is using pearlized acrylic paint which changes colors when viewing at different angles. It is also fascinating to see images of his painting process showing the various brushstroke layers that form his eye-catching work.
