“Although most of the work that I do is digitally created or edited in some way, I tend to have a preference for illustrations with a traditional feel. One of the most important tools for achieving this look is Photoshop. I use this program not only to paint digitally but also to combine traditional linework with digital coloring. In order to give my work an organic feel, I often use textures.”
You can visit his exhibition in the ECC from 26 January till 5 April 2020, every Sunday from 10 to 12 am and from 2 to 5 pm. Groups of 10 persons or more are welcome on other days by appointment.
