Redmer Hoekstra is an artist who is famous with his composite illustrations that merge animals and everyday objects. Netherlands-based artist finds his inspiration riding the train or on the road, where his mind can float through the landscape. Results are amazingly realistic and beautiful. It takes 32 to 40 hours average to finish these bizarre and detailed drawings.
“I’ve always loved alienation and fantasizing, daydreaming. As a child I had all kinds of theories about how the world worked. At the Academy I was able to rediscover this and process this in to my work. How things work is a fascination of mine and in many drawings you can find this. I open up appliances and objects and freely change what is inside . Often a subject gets a completely different feeling or meaning.
I play with form, meaning and function, while new combinations arise. Often surprising, strange and funny but also with a strange kind of logic, a fantastic and surreal world’’ – via: redmerhoekstra.nl
