Arie is a big big boy. Very big. Much bigger than most of his friends. Arie is big 201 cm big.

Arie was born in a Dutch family living in Luxembourg, but spent his teen ages in the German-speaking part of Belgium before moving to Liège. So he speaks easily and fluently Dutch, Luxembourgeois, German, French and English.

He is an architect, but he stopped working as an architect and left for Amsterdam where he is attending a contemporary art master degree, as all of a sudden he wanted to get more involved into creating conceptual art than constructed art.

Arie is a big fan of the Gabber movement. He says that it's not easy to be a gabber - "You cannot become a gabber when u decide it, because it's a complete and complex lifestyle."
