Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The inspiration for the whole series of Roy van Ecke's works were Myths as stories that contained attempts to explain the sense of the world. Myths are also a record of collective experiences and individual communities. They come from tradition, are timeless and anonymous. Myths persist in culture thanks to constant transformations and reinterpretations made by artists. The second source of inspiration for the Myths series was Asemic writing is a process inspired by handwriting. This is a completely abstract visual creation deprived of any specific semantic meaning and therefore open to every possible interpretation. Calligraffiti is a special form - an art form that combines calligraphy, typography and graffiti. This style integrates signs referring to lettering in compositions that form a broader, symbolic, very emotional message. The symbolism of calligraphy and deeply cultural inspirations from myths combine into abstract images with rhythmic, repetitive forms. Intensely colored backgrounds and a narrow range of colors are of special importance in the works of Roy Van Ecke.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Amsterdam

Based in: Amsterdam

Roy Van Ecke was raised in a family of Dutch functionaries. Roy was a rebellious boy, frequently changed schools, became independent at 18, interrupted and resumed studies. His fascination with calligraphy goes back to his childhood when, by using icons and symbols, he created his own alphabet.
Roy van Ecke studied parallel linguistics and graphic art, learned calligraphy in Japan and tried monastic life in China. He practices a combination of four traditional systems perpetuated over the millennia: Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga and Chinese calligraphy.
He adheres to post-painterly abstraction. While followers of this trend are ruthless in rejecting the inner and mysticism of abstract expressionism, Ron creates his own way of perceiving and communicating, his own approaches to the composition and basic elements of the medium itself: form, color, texture and scale.
