"Make-up, Painting & My Trips" Personal Page by RoyJava
"Make-up artist inspired by Javanese ancient virtual ethnic female Divine started to paint at 1996".
That is my life in a very few words. The beauty of the fashion-models, combined with traveling all around the world, got submitted to my wondering about beauty of the females... & males ...
Sounds funny huh ... the looks of humans touching my soul. I guess the mysterious Goddess Aphrodite co-operated that idea to my phantasy. Afterall she became the "Goddess of Love" and could love a bunch of men without being "punished" for that. I am sure she was the first woman using lipstick ... ;-)))
For about 25 years I've been working as a make-up artist/hair stylist with Corine's Agency, Dutch best model-agency, Amsterdam. Doing make-up & hair with the most beautiful females and travelling to the most exquisite places on the world has been a great privilege to me to visit all kind of cultural places. Companied by young beauties made those trips to a very pleasant way of life. Don't mention the wake-up call at 03.00 o'clock in the morning ... ;) btw >>>
Maybe a premature issue, though I do read lectures on the paintings I created. Because there is hardly to find anything about the aspects of the Javanese Spiritqueen. And because the research and studies I do already take about 12 years. The Dutch people and the Indos (born in Indonesia, living in Holland) do wanna hear about the incredible myths kept in the heart and tellings of Java ... Sounds great huh ? One of my last lecture was in May and December 2004, see pic ...
When I heard about some ritual-offerings included hair- and make-stuff specially dedicated to the Goddess I got so surprised while asking the Javanese why they make offerings like that stuff. "Because the Ratu is a Goddess", I heard, and a Goddess always is beautiful.
That sounds familiar to me, and I could understand the intention of this idea. And I loved it! That's why I started to look after all writings about this Javanese Divinity. All I found were "cerita rakyat" and "dongeng", like fairy-tales. I did not understand why. So my studies and research got the most important in my life ... showing some of the mystery of life.
Thanks for reading.
