Artist’s Portrait : Yasmine Tashk

Yasmine and me met quite a while ago because of some strange astral connections.
She’s a natural born illustrator and art flood in her veins although her scientific studies.
Thanks to Thibault’s help, we will discover the place where she works on her new projects, as well as some past experimentations with animation and comics. Here is my partner in crime, Yasmine. Enjoy.

Go to Yasmine’s blog and know more about her!

KSAT goes silkscreen printing!

KSAT goes silkscreen printing!

Last week KSAT had a magic speed date at Mesh Print Club in Rotterdam. Thanks to the amazing help of Gita and Mike from Atelier Mike Leach, we picked up the basics of silk screen printing and did our first tryout with our brend new screens! PROUD OF IT! Check out Martina working in the silk screen workshop, and how we build up the screens…

Learing from the masters…

 

And experimenting at Post–Office!

 

Get your own silk screen print at KSAT#7 LAUNCH on December 14th, Post–Office! See you there!

Artist’s Portrait : Iris Schuttevaar

Iris is a little super energic girl. She lives in a sunny apartment with two friends, where she re-created her little world. Her room is full of magic and charm. Iris works with words, old pictures and documents and she dresses up in bright colors. We talked in front of a coffee and discussed about her dreamy world, about bingo and her portuguese grandparents.

Artist’s Portrait : Kazuma Eekman

In a quite cold dutch night I visited KAZUMA EEKMAN apartment (and studio) in west Rotterdam. He lives with his friend Lizar and their house is full of little artpieces, tools, puppets, coloured posters and memories of past trips. We talked about fake dollars, zwarte piet and dutch maccaroni. Kazuma joined KSAT project in 2010, for its 3rd edition about « Mind Trips » and he never left us after that. He’s half dutch and half japanese. You’ll see him in december again, participating to KSAT 7th issue exhibition, in Post Office, Rotterdam.

Artist’s Portrait : Julie Thissen

This is a report of my morning encounter with JULIE THISSEN. She’s a freshly graduated product designer, with a special interest for testing different materials, pure forms, hand binding and patterns. Julie has a double french and dutch passport and spent her latest years travelling in several countries where she developed interesting design projects. Now she returned back to her basics, in Rotterdam. That’s where she lives and work. A nice coloured studio in the heart of Delfshaven.

To know more about the beautiful works of Julie, you should check her new website.
