My name is Boris Thorbecke and I was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands (1-4-1972). After living and working around the globe I now returned to live and work there again. From 1993 to 1998 I studied at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. After my studies, I started working as a freelance graphic designer/art director for clients such as Greenpeace, Nike and IKEA. I also exhibit my uncommissioned work in galleries and companies. In the eighties, I started as one of the first graffiti writers and you can probably see that in my work. But graffiti is not my main source of inspiration. I am inspired by everything from the old masters, the chaos in nature to the digital mass media. Everything eventually merges in the subconscious mind and so like this I want to visualize it, as a stream of unprocessed thoughts and dreams.
