About the artist: Tim van den Broeckfrom Belgium
“Step into my world and encounter flowing forms and snaky shapes, swirling through sleek compositions past erupting mountains of colour. Inconspicuous characters will be crossing your path, trying to sell you sheer imagination with their slick expressions or silly gestures. And you might observe quirky creatures floating by, hugging you with their thorny tentacles while sneakily stealing your socks.” That’s how Tim van den Broek sums himself up.
Why this work
“Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a story that carries me away from the daily worries to a place of wonder and wisdom. It triggers my imagination, makes me smile and teaches me a great deal about myself and life in general. The illustration is drawn with graphite pencils. I wanted to pay tribute to the black and white illustrations by Sir John Tenniel in the original book and I also took the opportunity to experiment with a technique that is different from my usual, more digital work.”
