Oi, bem-vind@s ao blog! Welcome to the blog!

Welcome to FKcasa!

My name is Frank Koopman.

I am a Dutch artist that came to Brazil in 2001.

Recently, I settled in Foz do Iguazu, where the Iguazu Falls are!

I am constructing an atelier using recycled materials. For the main structure, I will use earth filled car tires, a technique developed in the construction of so called “earth ships”. I will also build with glass and PET bottles, beer cans and materials from the scrapyard. The atelier will be located on the terrain of the COC Semeador School. The school is kindly sponsoring this project.

Be a volunteer in the construction of this art house!
