About us


The confrontation with theAzorean landscape and culture has made a major impact on thework of painter-philosopher Pieter Adriaans. In 2015 Pieter and his wife Rini opened a cultural center in the old cheese factory in SantoAntonio. The stunning landsca pepaintings he has made since 2002 form the heart of the collection and are on permanent display. Apartfrom that, studio “De Kaasfabriek” organizes expositions, concerts,courses and otheractivities. Pieter’spaintings are in collections all over the world. In 2018, after many requests, we decided to open a webshop to distribute the work of art and crafts men and woman on the beautiful island of São Jorge still make.
