my name is Gert-Jan Akerboom.
I am a Dutch artist living in Berlin (Germany)
From 1990 - 2000 i studied Carpentry and then Graphic Design in Holland.
In 2005 i got my BA in Fine Arts at the Willem de Kooning Art Academy in Rotterdam (Holland).
In 2006 i moved to Berlin where i still live and work today.
As an Artist i have been making works in many different disciplines but my main focus has been on Drawing on paper, Digital work and carpentry based sculptures and installations.
Drawing (both Analog and Digital) has always been an important part of my life and it is the one constant in my artistic practice. My drawings act as a visual diary where conscious and unconscious thoughts about the world are transferred into imagery. Drawing is the road as well as the designation and it is where ideas, concepts and experiments in different media meet.
‘A perfect (Video) loop is not just an artwork that has a seamless connection between its end and its beginning. A perfect loop, in my opinion, has no end and no beginning. It is a piece of information taken from linear time and placed into a bubble where time infinity repeats itself’
