Carli Hermès (1963), born in Schijndel and currently living and working in The Netherlands, studied photography at the Royal Academy for Visual Arts in The Hague and the Bournemouth School of Art in England.
He achieved international fame with his advertising photography for brands like Martini, Nike, and Suit Supply. Hermès has also made photo reports for leading international fashion magazines and portrays (international) celebrities. In his uncommissioned work, Hèrmes depicts surreal settings in which dreams appear to come true. Bold forms and vivid colours give shape to many of our innermost desires. The artist offers a world that is identifiable by its sensual and often erotic liberation. Hermès’ work is acquired by and exhibited in several museums, including the Groninger Museum, the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and the CODA Museum in Apeldoorn.
