Teis Albers

The art of Teis Albers (’82 Oud-Heusden, NL) is a mixture of elements from nature, pop-art and streetscapes. From blow-up trashed typography and weathered billboards to still-lives mixed with comic extravaganza. From the subconscious he plays with these various elements and allows the compositions to happen layer by layer. Everything comes together in a digital canvas where he has full control over size, composition and color. After that follows the physical layering with multiple prints and various materials like paint, glue and varnish.

The contrast between city and village forms the basis for his contemporary work. Cracked walls with layers of torn posters next to nature and wide views. Crowded malls with screaming adverts and a flock of birds, forming abstract shapes.

The works are a mix of illustration, typography, photography and various compilation techniques.
Teis finds inspiration in vintage stuff, street-art, comics, old brochures, travelling, film, art,
nature and music.
