We would like to introduce Wessel Rossen as our new artist of the month. Wessel is only nineteen years old and makes things happen on paper that we believe only a full grown artist can do. Rossen makes drawings on paper, on 3D products such as shoes, but also makes oil paintings based on movie cover pictures. It makes us think about a new manner of approaching pop art in the time we live right now. The energetic brush strokes are reflecting the quick passing of time and products in this 21st century. The drawings have the same fastness and show us energy and hones simplicity in the couple of pen/brush-lines used.
