Born in 1946 - Netherlands
But Clemens came from a large family. He simply had to start making a financial contribution to his family by paying for his room and board. Attending the academy to become an artist would have been extremely unusual in his situation – something his parents would never have dreamed of. Become a teacher like your brother Pieter…so you’ll always be assured of a job.
He failed the admission requirements to attend daytime classes at the academy! So he’d have to attend evening classes there and extend the length of his training. But was that such a bad thing? Actually no, because Clemens could start working during the day on his paid career. His first job? Messenger boy at the Rabobank. Thus – and it wasn’t how he would have planned it himself – he wound up in advertising after five years instead of in art. He worked as a graphic designer, art director, copywriter, illustrator and finally as a creative director But his destiny was still calling out to him.
At the age of forty-six, Clemens decided to become an artist.
