We are a group of young illustrators brought together at Minerva Art Academy and inseparable ever since. Since graduating in 2016 we have continued our collective workspace in the city as Knetterijs. We share a studio where we divide our time between freelance projects and collective endeavours, all whilst feeding off a healthy rivalry and shared excitement for contemporary illustration and graphic design.
Despite similar interests, the work of each member varies in style and approach, ranging from the traditional disciplines of woodcut and screen-printing to work made completely digitally. With that, we cover different branches of the field, including editorial illustration, posterdesign, book illustrations, advertising, animation and packaging.
