Geert Wilders is a popular Dutch right-wing politician who expresses a dislike of Islam on a continuing basis. After hearing him speak on television one night I realized that even though he speaks out against muslims he needed their presence to become a big figure in Dutch politics. And that's of course exactly what you see on this painting: small portraits of muslims making Wilders a larger than life figure.

The Prophet is an original, 100% handmade painting created with the finest quality of acrylic on gessoed panel. There are about 750 little portraits of muslims that make up the larger portrait of Wilders. It took a lot of head scratching and all of my skills as a painter to get it right. After two months of painting full time I was finally satisfied.

kind regards, Gerard
