3D art works by Phynta

2 min

When we saw the work of Phynta for first time we really had to look twice to see what was going on in his paintings. His 3D works are definitely one of a kind. The currently Amsterdam-based artist is originally from Rotterdam (1979) and studied at the Willem The Kooning Academy. After he graduated at the Academy he flew to New York to study at the School of Visual Arts. He then started a career in advertising as an art director.  Years later he picked up what he loved doing the most: drawing and painting, combining it with newly acquired conception and communication skills. 

Phynta is fascinated by the dualistic aspects of life; the fact that much, if not everything in life, is not what is seems. By looking at things differently one can change the meaning and value not only of what is looked at but also of one’s own identity.
