Boris de Beijer

Boris de Beijer (1986) lives and works in between Amsterdam and Haarlem, graduated at the Jewellery department at the Rietveld Academie in 2011. Started as a jeweller, Boris found a particular interest in extraordinary self-made materials, which he frequently exhibits in his works. In his objects and specific installations he playfully mixes abstract shapes and figures with slick internet aesthetics.

Boris told us he never made a drawing in Photoshop before, but decided to do so for his UNFRAMED design. He got inspired by NASA mission insignes and occult symbols, and we think it worked out really great.

Boris had numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including Centro Diseno Mexico City, Saatchi Gallery London, Contemporary Art Museum Hamburg and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. He has been granted with the Talent Development Stipend by Stimuleringsfonds Creative Industrie and Start Stipend by the Mondriaan Fund.
