New portrait of Rotterdam Jazz Artists Memorial
A new portrait has been added to the 'Jazzroute Rotterdam Jazz Artists Memorial', designed by Joost Swarte (1947, Heemstede); he signed the saxophonist Meijer Wery. The portrait can be seen above Primera, Oude Binnenweg 105. The newcomer will receive an official unveiling, along with the next portrait. The date of this extra festive day will follow soon.
Joost Swarte (Heemstede, 24 December 1947) is a cartoonist, graphic and industrial designer and creator of the term Clear Line. Swarte started his own comic magazine Modern Paper in 1971. Swarte became best known for his countless drawings, stamps, posters, postcards, LP and CD covers and his designs for cover covers (such as the Dutch weekly Vrij Nederland, the Belgian weekly Humo and the Italian architecture magazine Abitare).
