Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. At my day job I’m a creative director for an ad agency. At nights I’m designing my own stuff.
How long have you been making art?
Since I can hold a pencil. Off course it wasn’t art then, but drawing and making my thoughts visual was allways my thing.
Where do you get the inspiration for all of your art?
I never about inspiration. For me being creative is a craft, it isn’t about being inspired. Just starting and making things. It is like Yoda told Luke: “Do or do not, there is no try”. Inspiration has nothing to do with making art.
When I started out designing, I strongly belied that “Less is bore”. Ironically, these days the majority of my work is about minimalism. So less is more, but I could not do it without that little devil on my shoulder telling me again and again: “Less is bore”, “Less is bore”. It keeps me sharp.
These day’s: Thierry Guetta aka Mr. Brainwash. Confusing and controversial, how much artist can you handle.
Do you have plans for any upcoming series?
They come as the go. Whenever I feel the need to make some.
Which film, book, game or show would you want to live in for one month?
One month, no more, as a vacation. Middle earth. I kind of like living where I’am right now.
If you were on a deserted island what would video game, comic/book, movie, TV show would you bring?
Just some crayons and whitepaper. Nice low-tech stuff.
Where can we find you in the web?
