Yes he rocks, since 1606.

Rembrandt started his career in the 17th century. In those days people would say that they were on a brink of modern civilization. VOC, the first multi national emerged, introducing exotic herbs and exploitation. It brought prosperity and wealth to our claygrounds. The fashion trend was stiff but gracious. Black was the bomb. The Flemish, Portuguese and Spanish influence the 17thcentury hipsters in the street scene. And the millstone ruff rocked high society. It all vanished, surpassed by newer ages, gone. But Rembrandt still lives along, ruling the art world and being strangely contemporary as ever ( :

Launch of design Surreal!

(scroll naar beneden voor de Nederlandse versie:)

Yesss! today is the day that our new design will launch. Design ‘’Surreal’’ is now a reality! Normally I don’t wright blogs, but today is an exception. My name is Damiën Eektimmerman (One of the artists featured on the ‘’More artists page’’  Artwearness and creator of the surreal design). And as guest blogger for today, I’m gonna tell you a bit about the process of the ‘’Surreal’ design.

When I heard the theme for this design was ‘’Surreal’’  I immediately got exited. Surrealism might be one of my favourite forms of art, so this assignment suited me very well.

During the first steps I came up with several concepts, but I wasn’t really feeling it. Until one evening Salvador Dali and his iconic moustache just popped up in my head. I could see his moustache spelling out the word ‘’Surreal’’, and knew straight away that this would be a great base for the design. Once I had the idea my head it seemed so obvious. Dali is a legend when in comes to surrealism, furthermore his way of looking at the world has been a huge inspiration for me.

Design Surreal shows his Royal surrealness, Salvador Dali. Man’s madness and genius captured in a surreal image it-self. What can we learn from the outrages art of Dali? Well, what we can learn from artists like Dali is creating that art is a process of a total fusion between art & soul. A little strangeness is more than welcome and helps by staying mesmerized and bewildered. An artist is really not in the first place a merchant; he’s the enchanter we are all longing for in this time and age.

Yesss! Vandaag is de dag dat ons nieuwe design online komt. Design ‘’Surreal’’ is nu realiteit! Normaal gesproken schijf ik geen blogs, maar vandaag is een uitzondering. Mijn naam is Damiën Eektimmerman (1 van de artiesten die te vinden is op de ‘’more artist’’ pagina). En als gast blogger voor vandaag  ga ik jullie wat vertellen over het process van het ‘’Surreal’’ ontwerp.

Toen ik hoorde dat het thema ‘’Surreal’’ zou zijn werd ik gelijk enthousiast. Surrealisme is misschien wel een van mijn meest favoriete vormen van kunst, dus dit thema paste perfect bij me. Tijdens de eerste stappen heb ik een aantal concepten bedacht, maar ik was er nog niet echt tevreden mee. Tot ik op een avond plotseling Salvador Dali en zijn iconische snor in m’n hoofd had zitten. Ik stelde me zijn snor voor die het woord ‘’Surreal’’ spelde, en wist gelijk dat dat een goeie basis was voor het ontwerp. Toen ik het idee eenmaal had leek het zo vanzelfsprekend. Dali is een legende als het aankomt op Surrealisme, en daarbij is zijn manier van naar de werd kijken voor mij persoonlijk een enorme bron van inspiratie.

Design Surreal toont zijne surrealistische hoogheid, Salvador Dali. De mans gekte en genialiteit zelf,  gevangen in een surrealistisch portret. Wat zouden we kunnen leren van de buitenissige kunst van Dali? Ik denk dat als we iets  kunnen leren van kunstenaars als Dali is het wel dat kunst maken een proces is van art en ziel. Dat een beetje raarheid meer dan welkom is en helpt bij het betoverd en  het verwonderd blijven. Een kunstenaar is niet in de eerste plaats een koopman, hij is de tovenaar waar we allemaal naar verlangen in deze tijd!
