Johnn de Wit, 1964

John was born as the 11th child on the 10th of December 1964 in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. There’s been a fascination for stories since as long as he can remember – attention-claiming events you can willingly give in to, floating to areas still invisible to the eye. Observing from a distance, then in the middle of the movement; drifting on emotions. Whether it’s about stories that are written down or emerging from music, dance or movies, or about the frozen expressions of sculptures and paintings; all of these feed the way he looks at the world, widens his awareness and stirs the need to create.



Life is an accumulation of events, filled with stories that can be displayed by various disciplines. Various disciplines, but to him, the process is always the same: creating, the arising of something new. A feeling of freedom and emptiness in which the thoughts can be sculpted in peace is necessary for him to obtain insights and stimulate growth, to deepen connections and make new ones. 
A propelling, inner urge that keeps claiming his attention and that needs to be answered. This is why he does not want to be restricted to just one discipline. He plays and composes music - his main instruments are conga’s, and his love for the piano resulted in cautiously exploring this instrument as well. He writes stories, paints, designs and has a strong affinity with philosophy.
