After graduating on Graphic Design in the Willem de Kooning Academy (2015) Hans is developing in two directions. On the one hand as a professional calligrapher in the hardcore way. Mastering multiple scripts, teaching calligraphy and applying them. On the other hand as an autonomous artist where the strokes and rhythm of calligraphy getting turned into poetic artworks.
In the hardcore calligraphy you'll see a great understanding of letters and it's constructions. They're based on historical scripts but always adjusted with interventions to make the outcomes relevant for contemporary lettering.
The abstracted calligraphy shows his ability of mastering the tools & techniques and turning it into a new direction. From abstract surrealistic landscapes to trippy psychedelic images, there's a lot to see and even more to explore.
