Iris Bavelaar is an Amsterdam-based artist whose work portrays her pristine eye for aesthetics and is inspired by her constant curiosity for a broad spectrum of art forms and the story they tell. Having had a creative childhood, encouraged by her father; a passion for illustrating resonated throughout her younger years, yet it wasn’t until after following an art program at KABK that she decided to pursue a career as a professional artist.
Her contemplative and romantic view of the world around us is translated into her work as an illustrator, graphic designer and art director. Creating aesthetically pleasing illustrations, characterised by the balance between opposite factors. Her work clearly echoes a masculine yet femine nature, with delicate yet strong components and the combination of organic shapes and minimalistic lettering.
