Karel Lijbrink 1968-1984
Between 1984 and 1996 worked and exhibited Karel Lijbrink often in his studio at the Korteleidsedwarsstraat 7 in Amsterdam. The area around the Leidseplein from 1988 was the inspiration for a large number of screenprints. When the current street scene with wrecked bicycles, cars with wheel clamps and outgoing crowd was imaged in a humorous way.
From 1997 Karel Lybrink, internet caused a minor adjustment to his name, makes objects in wood and metal, inspired KOTOUKA rituals, he also made video animations as well as other digital art forms, currently still limited to 2d "mixed media paintings" but in the future also to print 3D objects.
Drawing and design I do mostly digital Anno 2016.
Here I use a stylus and a WACOM tablet.
The final artwork is done in mixed media on paper or canvas, using all kind of materials and techniques available: giclee, acryllic paint, pastel, ink and crayon.
