CURRENTLY WORKING ON.
NEW BOOK ALERT!
COLLAGE - A CLOSER LOOK BY TINTENKILLERS
In April, Tintenkillers will publish their art book for children at Komma publishers.
Tintenkillers consists of Bart Heesen and Rob Benders. Both use art and cultural education in an unorthodox way on a daily basis as a means within government agencies, companies and education.
In this book 45 renowned collage artists from 29 countries each present one of their fantastic collage artworks. On the page next to the work are 12 round fragments from the work in question. Are you able to find these details in the work?
The artists and the images of their works are carefully selected by Tintenkillers. During the selection, much attention is paid to the way in which the artists present social themes in their works. With their imagination, collage techniques and the use of obvious materials, the makers are ideally placed to provide global subjects with original angles.
Coollage – A Closer Look is more than an inspiring art book!

This school year I am graduating from the art academy in Maastricht with a degree in graphic design.
For my graduation project I started to delve into themes that interest me as a maker. A theme that has kept me busy over the past year is my generation called Gen Z, this has also become my exam theme. It is the generation that is currently studying and the oldest individuals are up to 24 years old. Not only are they currently studying, they have lived through the pandemic and grew up during the technological advancements of the 2000s. An interesting generation to analyze for my final exam piece as a student of MAMDT.
My final exam medium has become a tapestry.
Tapestries are the ultimate legacy for a generation, in the Middle Ages they were also used for telling folk tales.
My graduation work is a folktale about Gen Z.
It's a continuous piece that I'm working on until the end of June.

What is a riso print you ask?
Riso printing (or risograph printing) is a printing technique that originated in Japan. It is a combination of photocopying and the screen printing technique. Riso printing is a sustainable process, because little heat & energy is released. The ink is made from soybeans.
