‘Saint Michael & The Dragon’ (2019) is a team-artwork of 3,66 by 2,44 meters (144,1 by 96,1 inch) and tells a modern tale of good versus evil.

The making of the team-artwork started at Bruisweken Zwolle where over a hundred students contributed. After the Bruisweken, the painting was brought to Sint Micheals church (Academiehuis – Grote Kerk Zwolle), where more than seventy church visitors participated.
