    Biography : Tim’s development as an artist started early with the collection of exclusive design objects. Gradually he moved towards making those objects himself, with epoxy resin as a favorite means of expression. Mastering the material, Tim skillfully combined it with the things he loves most. Like the time he made an art object out of his favorite sunglasses. It is exemplary for the type of artist that Tim is. He transforms consumer products into art objects. It is not surprising that he has been influenced by artists like Pop Art’s Andy Warhol, Roy Liechtenstein, Arman, and James Rosenquist. American visual culture Pop culture is one of the most significant sources of inspiration for the artist. Tim is a movie fanatic and an avid reader. He meticulously makes notes of his ideas, which are plenty and found all around the world. American visual culture especially has always appealed to him. As a young boy, Tim wanted to be Indiana Jones, hunting for treasures and exposing secrets. In many ways, these are elements he incorporates in his art today. Dividing his time between Amsterdam and Ibiza, Tim continuously looks for gems in the news, film, city life in the Dutch capital, and the laidback island-vibe of Ibiza, to capture them in his art. The Case Together with the creative guidance of Martijn Wanrooij, director of Wanrooij Gallery, the artist has raised his practice to a higher level. The spectacular result is their current project The Case, a perfect evolution for Tim as an artist. The Case is a unique set of masterly crafted suitcases, with inside objects cast in epoxy resin. In his quest for The Case, Tim finds inspiration in different places, from movies from the eighties to the latest news. Think of a Jason Bourne-suitcase, a bribe-suitcase, or a hitman-suitcase. The Case calls to mind feelings of exciting adventures, dark mystery, or hard action. The tension between the items inside The Case and the spectator that beholds them is always present. To the ar

  • Leon Keer  (+)

    Biography : Leon Keer is a world leading artist in the anamorphic street art. He has executed commissions in Europe, The United States, Mexico, The United Arabic Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Russia, New Zealand, Australia and several Asian countries. A message seems to be present in his work. Current issues are reviewed, such as environmental concerns and the livability of this world. Leon Keer is constantly aware of the playfulness and beauty versus the degradation around him, a contrast that he expresses and amplifies in his work and which he uses as a metaphor for live. His paintings reflect his thoughts, confronting the viewer with the diseased spirit of our times, visible decay counter-pointing a timeless longing for unspoiled beauty. During his career Leon Keer often presented his art by live-action-painting performances. His ability of performing as a street painter, lets him share the joy of painting with the public. The anamorphic paintings are temporary but the images are shared via social media all over the world. He says: ‘Every street art piece is unique and belongs to the street and its residents, the temporary fact about this artform strengthens its existence’.

  • Logan Hicks

    Biography : Logan Hicks is a New York-based artist known for using multiple layers of stencils to achieve photorealistic imagery. Studying at the Maryland Institute of Contemporary Art in the early 1990s, Hicks cut his teeth as a successful screen printer, before being inspired to branch into stencils. During a party thrown at his 6,000 square foot warehouse he owned in Baltimore, Hicks befriended Shepard Fairey, who inspired him to move to Los Angeles to align with the Low Brow movement of the 90s, and concentrate on his fine art stencil work. Hicks relocated to Brooklyn in 2006 to focus on his fine art. Called a painter with a photographer’s eye, Hicks’ work has largely focused on the perception of the urban environment, at times humanizing its architectural angles and structures, and at others using its vastness to explore identity, awe, and loneliness. Through an almost old masters approach to lighting, Hicks has learned to manipulate ordinary architectural scenes into deeply metaphorical and contemplative imagery, compounded with his usage of color in the studio. In recent years, the artist has delved further into his own metaphorical language, bringing in themes like water to create dream-like imagery that explores his own meditative contemplation on life, death, struggle and submission. Tapping into his fascination with architecture, Hicks has also translated a history of decorative and cultural patterns into his stencil pieces, furthering the obscured reality created by patterns by incorporating them into photorealist stencil. To Hicks, pattern are an extension of light, hiding reality the same way trees cast shadows on the forest floor. Read Less (139 More Words) Hicks’ introspective themes and imagery are pushed from sullen to vibrant to enigmatic, with his expert use of color and meticulous control of the spray can. Over the years, Hicks has developed his impeccable photorealistic style using stencils, sometimes using up to 15 layers of stencil to achieve th

  • Gerard Rancinan

    Biography : Gérard Rancinan, who initially became widely known for his portrait photography, produces large-scale photographic tableaux commenting on social issues, politics, violence, and popular culture. Rancinan’s career a photojournalist in his teenage years, covering wars, riots, and natural disasters, directly shaped the critical tone of his later work. Rancinan’s works are often based on classical narratives and iconic artworks, but feature contemporary pop culture figures and objects in dramatic situations. Since 2005, Rancinan has worked on his epic series “Trilogy of the Moderns” with author Caroline Gaudriault, comprised of over 70 photographs. Subjects include remakes of Théodore Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa (1818-9) and Diego Velázquez’s Las Meninas (1665), as well as Mickey Mouse- and Batman-themed satires.
