Bram Reijnders | Art Collection
The first ‘action’ in his creative process is to roam the city at night and rip posters from the walls to use as a starting point for a new work. Reijnders refines these thick layers of curled paper by chopping and burning them, and uses them in conjunction with paints and glazes to assemble his outspoken and distinctive statement pieces. He describes these fragments as ‘urban jungle leftovers’ from messages, information and protest from the inhabitants of the city.
Bram Reijnders regards his art as an action rather than a narrative, organic, exciting and unpredictable. By taking well known figures and characters out of their usual context and adding a barrage of elements from pop culture, he renders the familiar unfamiliar, and the ordinary extraordinary.
Born and still based in the Netherlands, Reijnders explored and experimented with art from a young age. The turning point in his career came when he was unexpectedly invited to be a guest on a national TV show, an event which changed everything for him. After the show aired, he sold every single piece in his studio and demand for his work soared; he has never looked back.
