The heck is art anyways? haha! 

Willem is a philosophy student at the University of Ottawa where he focuses on ethics, politics, and aesthetics. Outside of philosophy, he has worked within graphic design, illustration, and sculpture. His sculptural work has focused on human interaction, communication, and the speculation of ecologically utopia futures which have been featured at Art Engine in the OAG in Ottawa, Ontario.

Willem's currently interested in the limits of reason and what harmonious natural ecosystems can show us about the human political atmosphere. Recent works are comprised of collaged material that follows and contradicts a sense of uniformity. This is done through pattern and strict lines, and contrasting with a feeling of randomness and playfulness. This playfulness is further explored through his mixed-media drawings where he explores what could be the subconscious and a lack of reason.

Outside of art, Willem works with non for profits, activist groups, and other artists on collaborative projects.
