[SISEA 1990] Artist Statement: Martijn Hage – Afraid of Birds

Artist Statement

The inspiration for my graphics is often based on symbolic events in a historical background such as cult, myth or anecdote. I built up an imaginary world shown from an ironical point of view. The computer as a tool gives me the possibility to intervene in the creative process at any time I like, for example to choose or to change colours or go back to previous steps in building up an image.
