Iwan Smit


Iwan Smit (1989) starting off with an interest in drawing studied Illustration and Fine Arts, where he began to paint and eventually started to develop the three-dimensionality of his images into sculptures and light works.


Smit's work navigates between heavy themes and lightheartedness, often resulting in colourful worlds with a dark twist. Creating work is for him a way to channel past events and feelings and investigate notions of fear, mortality and legacy. Smit attempts to make sense of the world through mixing his own experiences with collective beliefs, often questioning mythological symbols and their representation to create his own narratives
