In this series we will look deeper into a work that was especially admired in our community: AniWall, created by Bram Vanhaeren. Bram, a 24 year-old artist with a strong passion for portraits – and risk – was kind enough to share with us his process and inspiration for this recent project as well as his own strategy to make his creations successful!
Can you describe your process in creating this project?
Most people would be surprised if I told them it only takes me about two hours to complete a portrait! I believe the energy in my work comes from the fact that I don’t – or can’t – overthink about it. It is created within a very short period of time with a lot of energy and emotions. I love to embrace my small errors during this creation! I am all about – “Wow I love this song, this artist moves me! Let’s put this into a portrait”. I then draw for one hour, add colors, animation, music … Breathe and before I am able to judge the project I publish it on the web! I release it and watch the reactions. As you can see I embrace the chance to fail. I love it; I try to bring it as pure and honest as I can.
