Teis Albers, Netherlands
Teis Albers is a contemporary mixed-media artist from Berlicum, the Netherlands. Albers brings elements from nature, pop and street art together on a digital canvas. The diverse elements, ranging from billboards to birds, show the contrast between city and countryside. While the artists sources are often older, the viewer keeps discovering new things in his intricate arrangements, with hidden details in every composition.
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.
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, lots of music.
Teis attended the school for graphic design in Eindhoven and started doing freelance work right after graduation. After several years of working and living in the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch he recently moved to a more remote village. This contrast between city and village forms the basis for his contemporary art. 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.
