I’ve got a confession to make; I’ve posted quite a few people recently that I discovered on the website of a Dutch Risograph studio called Vinex Pers. Viktor Hachmang created their identity and they count some of my favourite illustrators as clients. Their website is packed full of exciting work from fantastic creative talents and I’d like to show you just one more.
Dutch designer and illustrator Robin Van Wijk is based in The Hague where he spends his time creating psychedelic, sci-fi inspired illustrations for a list of exciting, underground clients. He’s collaborated with Rajeev Basu, Julian Sirre and a handful of other brilliant talents – and he’s only just graduated college. Aside from his outstanding signature style that blends futuristic vector graphics with Matisse-esque torn shapes, he’s also an incredibly talented screen-printer, and has created some stunning animations from hand-pulled prints as part of his graduation project. Slow work I’m sure, but well worth the effort.
