My art is sweet, provocative & controversial. I create what I love and passionate about, every piece has a story behind, most of them reflects everyday life that we all share, referencing  emotional expressions, double meaning pun, some twisted slang and humor, music we love, movies and books, some pieces are the combination of the visual and verbal context hovering between comedy and tragedy.

Eelco Hilgersom

Eelco Hilgersom

Eelco Hilgersom was born in 1979 in Amsterdam. And since childhood, he has been fascinated by the architecture and structures that nature creates. This fascination drives him to create abstract works based on these natural forms and organisms. In all of his work, Eelco is looking for contrasts in form, color or material. “My aim is to touch the observers and take them into the work through the contrasts and complexity of the piece.”  To achieve this goal he uses different techniques and materials.

His latest artworks from the Habitat family are inspired by the many wonderful organisms that nature creates. The color, structure and capabilities of the skins of these organisms give each being its own ability to convey a message. Colors are used to scare an enemy or to seduce a partner. The brighter the color, the better the message gets across.

In the Habitat family, different structures and colors of the organisms are mixed and depicted in an abstract way. The organic shapes, colors and the reflective surface create a new kind of creature that wants to convey a message or an emotion. Every shape and color conveys a different emotion. And that is why each creature from the Habitat family has its own name, which equates to an emotion it wants to convey. Such as Brave, Juicy or Foxy. There are creatures that consist of a single shape and there are creatures that consist of multiple shapes.

Benjamin Cabral

Benjamin Cabral

Benjamin Cabral is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Chicago. His work has been shown internationally and throughout the United States. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at Steve Turner, LA and a solo exhibition at Allouche Benias in Athens Greece. Benjamin’s work was selected for a public sculpture commission by the City of San Diego’s Arts District.

A painter by training, Benjamin’s work is largely autobiographical in nature, creating an honest, yet inherently unreliable, portrait of the artist. These works examine the intersections between trauma and nostalgia, joy and sorrow, and the digital and the analog. Benjamin also creates sculptural work, intended to be static performers engaging with viewer.

Benjamin completed his MFA at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago and is the winner of the 2019 Carrie Ellen Tuttle Fellowship.

Frankey

Frankey

‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.’  Picasso once claimed.

For Frank de Ruwe, also known as Frankey, this problem simply doesn’t exist. Drawing inspiration from both childhood memories and a youthful fascination with present-day life and culture, his work takes many forms yet is always recognisable through its playful creativity and light touch of mischief.

Although he acknowledges the differences and thin lines between styles, trades and professions, he is equally happy to ignore boundaries while smiling politely. Such is the life of a designer/inventor/artist/advertising creative/technician/food critic who brings his creative mind and broad skillset to bear on creating truly distinctive work.

Frankey currently lives and works in Amsterdam, with his work having been displayed across the Netherlands, including the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and in various exhibitions in the United States, Italy and Germany.

His street art bravado and cultural sensitivity informs his public and private commissions and is most appreciated by an audience fond of truly distinctive art with a healthy dose of lightheartedness.

‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.’  Picasso once claimed.

For Frank de Ruwe, also known as Frankey, this problem simply doesn’t exist. Drawing inspiration from both childhood memories and a youthful fascination with present-day life and culture, his work takes many forms yet is always recognisable through its playful creativity and light touch of mischief.

Although he acknowledges the differences and thin lines between styles, trades and professions, he is equally happy to ignore boundaries while smiling politely. Such is the life of a designer/inventor/artist/advertising creative/technician/food critic who brings his creative mind and broad skillset to bear on creating truly distinctive work.

Raider 2023

RAIDER | First Contact
11 may – 26 aug

Wanrooij Gallery in Amsterdam presents the first solo exhibition by the 21-year-old Dutch creator RAIDER from 11 May until 26 August 2023. The exhibition First Contact shows a wide and colourful selection of sculptures, silkscreen prints, digital artworks, neon designs, and wall objects. RAIDER transforms the two floors of the gallery into an exciting art experience, introducing the character Scoop.

RAIDER represents a new, young generation of contemporary artists. With a great passion for art, his iconic sculptures of the fictional character Scoop have gained attention from gallery owners and art collectors around the world since 2020. The creator experiments with all available techniques and materials in a traditional way.

The new and sparkling work of RAIDER has its own unique signature. It is fresh, pure, and colourful. For the design of figure Scoop, spheres are used as primal elements, referring to the science of discovering extraterrestrial life forms. The storyteller draws inspiration from film, animation, music, and travel.  

Scoop is from another planet and is now discovering our world and its inhabitants. Scoop is friendly, curious, and reflects on human behaviour with a childlike innocence. The Scoop sculptures are made of resin, and are available as Limited Editions in a variety of colours and sizes, from small (10 cm) to monumental (180 cm). Bronze is also used by the creator. Each sculpture is completely handcrafted and painted.

RAIDER (2002) lives and works in Amsterdam. He studied Creative Design in Utrecht. The creator’s autonomous work has been presented at art fairs such as Art Miami, Art Karlsruhe, KunstRAI in Amsterdam, and Affordable Art Fair in Amsterdam, London, and New York. After a pop-up store presentation during the Milan Design Week 2023, his first solo exhibition in the Netherlands is scheduled at Wanrooij Gallery.

Koh Sang Woo

Koh Sang woo
21 oct – 21 jan

Wanrooij Gallery in Amsterdam presents a solo exhibition of the American-Korean visual artist Koh Sang Woo from 21 October 2022 until 21 January 2023. The exhibition Wild in Blue‘ shows a selection of colorful photographic paintings. The vivid portraits of wild animals, with human characteristics, display a prominent use of the color blue with a subtle pink hart. 

Koh Sang Woo is internationally known for both his blue tone photography as the recent ‘Blue Endangered Animals’ series in his signature style. For the series of endangered animal species, including pandas, tigers, bears and elephants, he combines photography with digital painting. The artist is inspired by the work of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Andy Warhol.

As in traditional art, the animals are portrayed frontally; to communicate with them and to grant authority. The confident expression powerfully reflects character, personality and emotions, just like with people. The portraits are characterized by bilateral symmetry and a sense of static stability and unity. As an artistic message from Koh Sang Woo, wild animals are equal to humans and deserve respect; with the longing for a harmonious society where animals and humans coexist.

Koh Sang Woo (1978) lives and works in New York and Seoul. He graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). He double majored in Photography and Performance Art. The artist exhibits worldwide. His autonomous work has been presented at leading art fairs such as The Armory Show in New York, Art Basel in Hong Kong, Art Miami, KunstRAI in Amsterdam and SCOPE Basel, and is included in the collections of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and the Savina Museum in Korea. In 2021, the extensive and iconic oeuvre was captured in the monograph ‘Koh Sang Woo 20 Years’.

Wanrooij Gallery will also present a selection of paintings by two new Indonesian artists, Elang Sutajaya and Valdo Manullang, at the same time as the Koh Sang Woo exhibition; as part of the

gallery’s Unexpected program.

Julius Rooymans

JULIUS ROOYMANS
Schaduw van de meester
10 maart tot 15 mei

Opening hours: Thursday, Friday, Saturday 12:00 – 17:00 and by appointment.

Free admission

“As a little boy I liked to draw adventures. If the paper turned out to be too small, I would stick an extra sheet to it. And then another one. Nowadays I make film and photo installations. I dream of large projects where people can walk through the projections and images. In a sense, I’m still the little boy who makes drawings of stories that run outside the magazine.“

Julius Rooymans grew up in an artist’s nest in a village near Amsterdam. His father was a painter, mother a sculptor. He learned from his parents to never choose the easy way. If you need something for your project, you have to do it. His father regularly had to choose between buying food or linen to paint on. That is the side of art that Julius saw from an early age: self-sacrifice, enthusiasm. Put financial security and health at risk for your productions.

“I stretch the dividing line between reality and fantasy: how much friction fits in an image before the viewer becomes aware of it? Your own eyes solve my photos.“

His work caught on after the Rietveld Academy. He received assignments for international advertising agencies and magazines, made covers for Newsweek and The New York Times, did shoots from helicopters over Africa and stood on skyscrapers in America.

“Registering the photographic reality doesn’t grab me, I love compelling great stories.”
