With over 14 years of experience of commercial photography, from portrait, advertising, professional sports and corporate, Paul Raats has transformed into a passionate artist. He loves to create his own visuals, but also new ways of presenting the visuals, so the use of new and complex materials. He wants them communicate towards the audience in a special way. For him it's important to have physical pieces of art in our world, as most people get pushed into a digital life. Happiness, connecting, meeting new people, learning and communications through art, drives his passion. His intensive travel to 52 countries, the sudden loss of his parents and brother, his experience as photographer, the immense passion of his work, and his positive vibes gave him the energy and gift to be creative and unique in the art scene.
