Fashion meets Art

GMraven makes art wearable. We believe that art should not be just one piece of artwork at one place but a dynamic creation, carried all over the world. This wouldn’t be possible without talented artists who provide us with their art. See below for an overview of the art and artists GMraven works with.

Trompette de la Mort

Artists Bruno Ferro Xavier da Silva and Gwen Stok explore an illusive sanatorium with the creation of Trompette de la Mort. Their art has a macabre but playful feeling to it, as if you’re the guest of honour among cannibals, while trying to remember proper table manners. Bruno and Gwen decided to work together in 2014. Their first show was in December 2014 but this was just the beginning. They will continue to create drawings, but they will also do commissioned work.

They are specialised in ink drawings (small and big) and paintings as well.

Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk

Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk studied graphic and typographic design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, The Netherlands (Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten, Den Haag).

After graduation Pepijn focused more on illustrating and painting. This was the beginning of Cirque d’extraordinaire or what later became his alias and studio name ‘Cirque de Pepin’.
Pepijn’s circus, as a metaphor for a place where anything can happen.
Around 2002 Pepijn came into contact with ceramics. A world of possibilities revealed itself. Nowadays Pepijn works explicitly in these various disciplines. With an emphasis on craftsmanship and detail.

Pepijn’s works combine different influences. We see colorful, detailed paintings, drawings and ceramic sculptures, of dressed mice, owls, Chinese dragons and other animals and fantasy creatures.
They seem to have stepped out of a fairy tale world. The imagery is that of the comic strip, and often humorous. Yet they are anything but childlike images, that only reassure or amuse. They are not so much comical. But perhaps rather tragicomic, with a deeper meaning, which is rooted in history, or historical stories.

Luuk Bode

Luuk Bode lives and works in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He makes paintings, drawings, murals and sculptures.

His work is influenced by elements in contemporary urban landscape: angular skylines, shifting perspectives, reflections, road markings, scratched stickers and graffiti. Bode’s earlier art  was character driven, well-rooted in popular culture. Pop-icons and street art were important sources of inspiration. By focusing on the characteristics of these elements, Bode’s work turned more monumental and abstract. Great modern painters of the 20th century are playing an increasing role in his art. All this evolved into an imagery built from hard, geometric shapes, leaving little room for doubt. It’s a world of strength and vitality.

After graduating at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, Bode  worked as an illustrator for clients such as dutch rockers Golden Earring, several national newspapers and Museum Rotterdam.

For Rotterdam 2007: City Of Architecture he did a giant painting of app. 3.500 square metres on the market square of Rotterdam. 
Together with fellow artists Hans van Bentem, Boris van Berkum and Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk he formed ‘De Artoonisten’. They created the Marten Toonder-statue in Rotterdam.

Shows include Zic Zerp Galerie, de Kunsthal (Rotterdam), MAMA Showroom, La Luz de Jesus Gallery (Los Angeles), P3 (Londen) and the Biennial of Dakar (Senegal).

Wouter Nijland

Wouter Nijland (1980) is a artist whose paintings are, as he says: “a combination of judgment, child’s play and evolution”.

“I’ve always had a interest for duality, contrast. Wild and calm, that’s me, from time to time. These aspects have been translated into my works. The planned and the accidental agglomerated in a painting. Minimizing the use of colors and representation and at the same time arousing a lot of impressions. It’s about the game, not about the marbles”.

Sebastiaan van Weelden

Sebastiaan van Weelden (1986) is a artist whose work can be placed somewhere between art and design. He finds his inspiration in architecture, traditional crafting and art.

As a artist, Van Weelden is looking for the boundary between chaos and order. At which moment in time does the pattern loses his balance which changes order to chaos? “Balance is created by the right way of arranging shapes and colors. Repetition is the keyword for creating the right composition”.

Anouk Griffioen

Anouk Griffioen (1979)

„Art does not reproduce the visible but makes things visible.“ – Paul Klee
When we enter a room of artworks by Anouk Griffioen we find ourselves surrounded by colossal people, hybrid beings and shadows. The auras of these works can be frightening, strange and confusing, but they also arouse the viewer’s curiosity about the inner beings inside her creations. Her lifelike method of depiction lends them great expressivity.
Griffioen amalgamates reality and imagination; flora and fauna merge seamlessly into one another, thus forming
surrealistic dream worlds. Griffioen is capable of committing the invisible and unreal to paper, all the while making it seem like reality to the observer.
The great depth, complexity and attraction of her artworks are illustrated and enhanced by the effect of her black- and-white charcoal and pencil drawings. For these, she uses formats that range from life-sized to monumental, which underscore the effect and forcefulness of her works. Her inspiration and imaginativeness derive from small, everyday things and from the imagined worlds of her children.
Like “Alice in Wonderland”, she pitches us into a dimension where the laws of nature no longer hold good and where our imagination knows no bounds. In this way she expands our field of experience using something special and wondrous. Every work in her oeuvre possesses an extraordinary power of attraction, which the viewer finds it hard to escape.

Sigrid Calon

Sigrid Calon (1969) studied on the Academy of Fine Art with a specialisation in textiles. She is interested in developing the autonomous language of textiles. She works across a range of different media on a smaller scale, always rigorous and playful, complex and colorful. She seems perfectly at home working on a grand scale as well, sweeping her colors and codes across the surfaces of walls and buildings. Moving from two to three dimensions, her work becomes site-specific, and the space where she creates her art becomes an integral part of the work itself. Sigrid lives and works in Tilburg, Netherlands
