Through years I explored various fields in different creative industries, developed skills and found a passion for wide range of design techniques which led me to become an independent artist. 

I put a lot of personal statements in the flavours of the lollies, which some of them are emotional expressions / double meaning pun, some combinations of real ice-cream names twisted with contemporary slang and humour, most of them reflects everyday life that we all share, referencing music, movies and books, some pieces are the combination of the visual and verbal context hovering between comedy and tragedy

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.”

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.

Viktor Freso

VIKTOR FRESO
28 may – 20 aug

Frešo lives and works in Czechoslovakia and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava and in Prague at the Academy of Fine Arts. His work and overall approach to art is rather untypical but at the same time they reflect the situation in the society and culture. The artist creates sophisticated concepts and projects presenting them as seemingly simple closed “Pieces of art”. He is often critical in his works and expresses his contempt of the art scene itself and its processes but with a light, humorous and playful undertone.

He prefers short interval between action and reaction and conditions of quick recognition of relations between the expressing “me“ and the indication “he”. Another very typical aspect is that he publicly presents his radical and often despising opinions of the society and art scene which might irritate and provoke a discussion about what is and what is not acceptable as contemporary art or just a self-centered affect of the artist.
