Exhibition in Kemistry Gallery London, until 30 November.
Amsterdam-based illustrator Stefan Glerum spent four years in Breda studying illustration at the Academy St. Joost. He also worked as an assistant to one of the country’s most celebrated comic artists, Joost Swarte. Glerum’s style is like a melting pot of illustration heritage. While its subconscious familiarity has universal appeal, his work is also a point of study for those with knowledge of graphic design history. Inspired by early 20th century movements such as Art Deco, Bauhaus, Italian Futurism and Russian Constructivism, he combines his work with popular themes, executed in a style reminiscent of the clear line.
