Jeroen Heester
Boxmeer (1972)
Amsterdam.

Jeroen Heester is a prize winning architect, publicist and artist.
Works by Heester have been exhibited in musea and art platforms in the Netherlands. His architectural visions have been published both nationally and internationally. According to Heester we are all dancing to the music of our duality mindset.

His findings concerning the metaphysical aspects of urban planning and architecture lead him to deeper investigate cultural motives. After a focus on social psychology he welcomed the arts as a non-scientific medium to explore and to learn-by-create.
In his studies Heester focussed on the duality mindset in relation to moral relativism and relativity. On his route he experimented with various styles. As a result of his findings, Heester continues to search for a holistic approach of human culture.
