Iwan Smit (Rotterdam, 1989)
Starting off with an interest in drawing, I studied Illustration and Fine Arts, where I began to paint and eventually started to develop the three-dimensionality of my images in sculptures and light works.
My work navigates between heavy themes and lightheartedness, often resulting in colourful worlds with a dark twist.
Creating work is for me a way to channel past events and feelings and investigate notions of fear, mortality and legacy. I attempt to make sense of the world through mixing my own experiences with collective beliefs, often questioning mythological symbols and their representation to create my own narratives.
