Chris Idema is an architect and screen printing artist who is inspired by the: built environment, strong design language, ensembling, and the figurative.
Influenced by his earlier work, sketching his surroundings in thick black line artwork, he has been developing his craft of screen printing through experiments of how to transfer three-dimensional qualities to a flat medium. As such, his work is characterized by the search for depth by modeling and lighting, highly contrasting elements and bold colorwork that find their way onto paper through a combination of digital and hand production.
Since a very young age, Conform Cox (Cox Janssens) has been driven by exploring, learning and creating. To become a Homo Universales was in her head a good choice for a job. She never lost this eagerness to be a know-it-all: it made her work in different creative fields and established her creative studio Conform Cox in 2016. Cox has worked as an illustrator, animator, graphic designer, podcast maker, researcher, textile designer for different clients and makes detailed prints in her free time, using analogue techniques.
Roderick van Hasselt is a screenprinter & Rotterdam (marine) pilot. His screenprints are photograph based and Roderick likes to experiment with colour profiles creating a rich colour experience with a minimal palette. Main subjects are patterns from nature and maritime images.
