Procurement land, Dutch Government

I made a map (in Dutch) of procurement land (Inkoopland). This was commissioned by a collaboration of government agencies. The aim for this map is to give people who work within the Dutch municipalities more insight in the procurement lexicon. It also serves as a way to get people signed up for a procurement course. The design is a like a page in an atlas where different highlights of a land are shown. Every city and place has some link with the procurement lexicon. The maps was printed on an …

Portrait of my brother

This a portrait of my big brother, the fourth one in my series. My brother had tough time the past two years with a divorce. So now he is standing on one leg in Balance. Two houses depict the two households that there are now. The three lampposts are his kids. The big crane means reconstruction of his life, as well as his feet that are partially deconstructed. I must admit that for this portrait was heavily influenced by the American Realist painter Bo Bartlett. I took his composition and …

Brushing up on my motion capture skills. But I must admit that nowadays it is a lot easier to apply motion capture data then a few years ago. samba fluid from Dimitry Berg – Brainbulb on Vimeo. Falling Man from Dimitry Berg – Brainbulb on Vimeo.

Ocean in glass sphere

This work that I made is inspired by Hieronymus Bosch. I visited the Hieronymus Bosch exhibition in Den Bosch a few years ago and I was struck by the sheer beauty of it all. One of his works called ‘The Garden of Earthly Delight‘ is a triptych oil painting. Which means that it consists of 3 panels which can be closed. When the panels are closed, there arises a new painting (see image). The exterior panels show the world during creation. I wanted to recreate that feeling of a miniature …

4 selfportraits

I fooled around with an app called Bellus3d. It gives you the possibility to make a 3d scan of your head with an iPhone x. The scan can be imported in several 3d programs, which I promptly did. So I made several self portraits. One of them looks painted, which I am really proud of. Most of the time I work with filters so that it looks like it is painted. This is the first time I used several brushes on the image in Photoshop to get that oilpainty look. …

Portrait of Joris

This number 3 in my series of portraits that I am making. This is a portrait of my good friend Joris. He is a life coach who as you can see in the portrait loves to surf. My previous portraits were more realistic. In the sense that my father and Jorrit are more or less possible in real life. With Joris I wanted it to be more surreal. The main theme of his portrait is balance. Can you figure out in how many ways I have a portrayed that theme?

Portrait of my dad

This is my 2nd portrait that I made. This one was really hard to make. Mainly because it is a portrait of my dad. When I do a portrait I want the one who is being portrayed be pleased with what I made. But if they are not pleased, I am not overly disappointed, things like style and taste differ. But with my dad it is a whole different ball game. Just felt like a kid again, who presents his drawing to his parents. Relationships with your parents can be …

Portrait of Jorrit

This is a portrait of my good friend Jorrit. Jorrit is a photographer and someone who is an all-round Handyman. This is the first one in a series of portraits I am making. When handing over his portrait I interviewed him. He was really touched by the way I portrayed him and as an artist that is the reaction you hope for. In my work process I first took several pictures of him, then I recreated him in 3d. He thoroughly enjoyed the photo shoot, especially the hair cap. But …

Klimaatgesprekken Flyer and Banner

For the Dutch Branch of Carbon Conversations (Klimaatgesprekken) I designed a banner and a flyer. The idea is to show real people who do their best to lower their carbon impact. Different examples are presented, like driving an electric vehicle or going on a holiday locally.  The pictures are presented like small puzzle pieces. We are all small pieces in the puzzle of lowering our climate impact. On the flyer there is a call to action ‘Discover the workshops’.

RIJK Sustainable Public Procurement Poster

I also designed a poster that was inserted in the Rijk magazine. This poster represents the flow of sustainable public procurement. Flowcharts are of course a simplified representation of the procedures/steps people within an organisation have to take. The simplification always leads to discussion. How can you simplify complex things? In this case the flowchart with the blue background represents the organisational or strategic flow of sustainable public procurement. The flowchart with the green background represents the tactical/operational flow of sustainable public procurement. Then there are the different themes where …
