About Myself:

After studying IT and Communication at the age of 18, Timo realized IT was not the right choice for him, instead he pursued his hobby as a photographer. This eventually led him to try to get into the Academy of Art in Maastricht. After 6 weeks of preparation, he actually made it into the propedeutic year. 

 

During this time Timo’s interest shifted from pure photography to a more diverse skill set and in the second, third and fourth year he majored in theatrical design. Which allowed him to use photography, digital skills, and physical models in his concept designs. 

Theatrical design was one of the majors in which painting and drawing where mandatory courses during all years. Originally an IT-guy, when starting the academy, resulted in difficulties with drawing and painting in the first year. But in the end, through perseverance and effort managed to graduate with exceptional high grades for both courses.

Timo calls himself a research artist, because all of his work is either based on research, or his creations are considered by him as research.
During art academy his main project was the painting of the material glass. Considering its reflections and shapes and how this could be reflected on the canvas. This project lasted 2.5 years. In 2016 Timo started researching semi realism and chose “eyes" as his new subject. 

His goal is to find out when and how realism is achieved and how suggestion plays a big role in achieving realism. Still, Timo does not see himself as a painter on canvas, but instead uses a different scale of materials and always sees the possibility to turn analog paintings into digital artworks.  In 2017 the Warhol Exhibition by Cadillac caught his eye, and since research artist and commissions suit each other very well, he tried analyzing the previous works by Andy Warhol and used the gathered impressions in creating the new artwork. 

Next to his job, and his art during the period 2008-2017, he was an Athlete in Dance Sport. This year the ultimate goal of reaching the highest class was reached. Dancing supported him creatively in these years, but also gave him the confidence and audacity to present and be aware of himself.
