Geoff J. Kim geoffjkim.com

‘Based Vase’ is part of a collage series by Geoff J. Kim created from Classical European still life paintings. The beauty of collage is such that it allows for the reappropriation of past works which were accessible to some, while wholly unavailable to others. A deconstruction and reconstruction of these images traces a unique dialogue between the past and present. Geoff is an artist from New York currently residing in Amsterdam.


Celien Brijder celienbrijder.wordpress.com

The fascination that I’m working on has to do with the fact that we constantly get imposed needs and obligations. Ideal images that are imposed on us by the Western society and culture we live in. I draw a conclusion:


We’re getting more en more self-centered. There is a distance between yourself and the people around you. I show this distance and I want to strengthen that in my paintings by making big contrasts between the people and actions. Together alone...


Studio Smoking Pig / Mandy studiosmokingpig.com

Studio Smoking Pig is a small graphic design studio that creates bold, illustrative designs in which paper, scotch tape and a computer are key ingredients. When not working, Mandy likes to watch old pulp movies (and getting oddly inspired by them).


Dennis Lier dennislier.tumblr.com

Placing his subject in a surreal setting, Dennis is trying to push the boundaries between art and fashion trough a mixture of Photography and Digital Art, and its hard to distinguish what is real and what is not real in his work. Each art piece gives the viewer the opportunity to create their own world/ reality, like reality it’s self it’s how you interpret it... so what is reality?


Anne de Groot annedeg.nl

Anne de Groot (1989) graduated from Academy for Beeldende Vorming in Amsterdam(2011). During her course of study she discovered a love for painting and photography. Those two art forms were combined in her exhibition ‘Imperfections’.


Anne is inspired by the beauty of the face. She tries to create a whole new perspective of the face. With her layered oil paintings she can explain the imperfections in her artworks. Anne’s paintings have a fragile feeling with a touch of naivety.


Hannah Wiersma &

As a fashion stylist, normally the model is my canvas. When I first worked on a series of stills, I didn’t like it one bit.

Maarten Ben Gal

The first picture took us 6 hours! Maayan showed me the fun in creating stills. The possibilities are endless and the results

are very satisfying.


Paul van Bueren paulvanbueren.nl

I love the slow work pace while using analogue camera’s. Working for over half an hour on one portrait. The total time per photo is longer, there is more room for errors and if you use it right the results are better than digital! Model: Christina Tsene


Emma Winter emmawinter.com

Project: ‘Grimms Floral’ Medium: 1000 beheaded roses, willow, lichen, blood sweat & tears. Emma Winter is a London based artist who’s work spans across Set Design, Artistic Direction & Sculptural Installation.


Lisette Appeldorn lisetteappeldorn.com

The idea of creating masks was inspired by the African culture, because these masks often made out of wood and illustrate the connection between humans and animals. I created a new method of construction, while using the same material as traditional masks. By applying different folding techniques to thin layers of plywood I was able to make the masks look futuristic.


Erik Benthem erikbenthem.nl

As a graphic designer my visual creativity goes further then digital drawing. Painting with acrylics and mainly expressionist portraits is what I love to do. These portraits include many color and coarse set, this is typical of my work. I make these paintings on a commissioned basis.
