Antoine Ramakers

Portfolio of the day

January 16, 2018

 

Who are you?

My name is Antoine Ramakers, born in The Netherlands in 1985. I’m a self-taught photographer. At the age of 19, with a second-hand Canon T50 35 mm camera, my love of photography was born. Later on I started to travel more and more. I love people with their cultures and customs, beautiful nature all over the world, I want to capture it. That is why I always have my camera with me to capture and share some of the experiences and views that I encounter. The most of my work is from my travels.  

 

What is your next creative project?

Early 2018, I'll do a volunteer project in Africa for a period of 3 months, so I am very busy at the moment to plan everything. But I’m hoping to capture the local life there and maybe bring home some beautiful portraits. 

 

How would you describe your work? 

I would describe it as travel/landscape photography.

 

 

 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

Mostly other photographers are an inspiration for me. I really love the work of the following people: Jess Dales, Quin Schrock, Travis Burke and Chris Burkard.

 

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

There is more out there. I want to inspire my viewers to go out and travel, to enjoy beautiful things in nature and people. Meeting other cultures broadens your view. Beside that, I offer some of my works to buy.

 

 

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

The simplicity. I needed something to showcase my photography in a appealing way without spending hours editing content or the look of the page. Portfoliobox provides extremely beautiful templates, getting your site up and running in minutes. Also, the number of pages and photos to upload is really high, which is really important to me. Beside that Portfoliobox offers a very good pricing system.

Who are you?

My name is Yeyei Gómez. I'm an illustrator and painter, and I live and work in Madrid, Spain. I've made drawings for written and digital press as eldiario.es and El Salto. I have also collaborated with Spanish Red Cross in an illustration project. I'm a member of APIM (Association of Illustrators of Madrid). My work has been seen in places such as Matadero, Estampa, Ilustrísima and Mulafest, and abroad at Roll Up Gallery in San Francisco. Last month I finished and released my first book. The title is Naufragio Universal, 164 pages of satirical drawings about our society. It's written in Spanish with the translation to English.

What is your next creative project?

Naufragio Universal has been possible thanks a an art grant from The Instituted of the Youth. It involves workshop and students interactions, so it is in process and it could be seing in Interferencias exhibition in the Sala Amadís and in Empirica Gallery in Granada.

On the other hand, I am into the Refest project, which aims to put together a group of artists around the situation of refugees, and whose result will travel in an itinerant way through different exhibitions and festivals.

 

Who is your biggest influence in the industry?

My artistic training is mainly linked to painting. Among the artists that interest me most are Hockney, Kirchner, Leonora Carrington, Maruja Mallo, Alex Kazt and Leonor Fini.

 

Can you tell us more about your book "Naufragio Universal"?

Naufragio Universal is a publication of 164 pages, self-published, which presents a catalog of problems and reflections on today's society. The media, capitalism, technologies and wars are some of the topics that are treated, from an ironic and satirical point of view.

What do you like about Portfoliobox? 

It is incredibly easy to handle. I can edit the pages very easily. It allows me to show my work in a very simply way. In the past, I have tried with other website builders and it's never work out. Otherwise I would like some other payment options in the e-commerce platforms.

Jaco Putker

Portfolio of the day

January 01, 2018

 

Who are you?

My name is Jaco Putker and I’m a printmaker from The Hague, The Netherlands. I combine digital and traditional etching techniques to produce hand pulled prints which are both playful and sinister, nostalgic and magical.

 

What is your next creative project?

I’d like to move my work into the 3D world. Also I’m interested in animating my prints. Both of these are still vague ideas that need to simmer for a little while longer.

 

How would you describe your work? 

I see my prints as illustrations to fables that don't exist, but hopefully take shape in the viewer’s minds.

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

Rather than impose a meaning to my work, I prefer to invite the viewers to associate freely and give the prints personal significance through individual perceptions and filters. I like to let the people make up their own stories.

If anything, I’d like to inject the audience with a little mystery and wonderment.

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I was drawn to Portfoliobox by the design of the templates. All the preview sites felt really fresh and contemporary and I wanted my website to have a similar clean and crispy design. Once I set to work on it, I found building my site was really easy and intuitive. I also really liked the possibility to open a great looking store.

I had researched other platforms, but basically I found that Portfoliobox had incorporated all the elements I liked from all different providers into one easy to use and economically sound service.

Portfolio of the day

December 25, 2017

 

Who are you?

Im a Visual Artist based in New York. My creative work include photography, cinematography, and brand marketing.

I'm originally from Florida, after winning my first film festival I decided to move to New York to chase this dream.

 

What is your next creative project?

My next creative project is with Getaway.House who sponsored me through an Artist Fellowship program.

It's a gallery event showcasing landscapes from the city VS landscapes from nature.

 

 

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox has given me a platform to showcase my work in a beautiful, intuitive, and minimalistic interface. 

 

How would you describe your work? 

I would describe my work as nostalgic, or at least that's what I intend to promote through my projects.

 

 

 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

Biggest influencer is Martin Scorsese.

 

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

My work has a lot to do with what goes on internally, so if a viewer can connect in any way. It makes it worthwhile to use my art to communicate the things I can quite explain with words.

Gonzalo Bénard

Portfolio of the day

December 18, 2017

 

Who are you?

I’m Gonzalo Bénard, artist and author expressing myself in different means like painting, drawing, photography or writing. I spend few years in Himalayas both in a monastery and with the shamans in the higher lands. And have been a “nomad” since then, living in Lisbon, Paris, Barcelona, with some time spent in Sahara or Ireland. As artist I’ll be having the 50th exhibition of my works next year in Toronto. As author I mostly write about shamanism, meditation and consciousness.

 

What is your next creative project?

I’m always working in different projects and different means to express myself (an autistic challenge though), and whilst I have had projects going on for 5 years, like the series “B Shot by a Stranger” shot through webcam focused on youth loneliness and depression, I keep exploring shamanic ways to express mainly through art-photography. I am preparing now new exhibitions and series for next year, mostly related with the connection between human, consciousness and nature.

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

It’s clean, easy to use, clever back office, easy to navigate with enough templates to make it comfortable to change and create unique and diverse moods within the webpage. Also the attention to client is always kind, quick and professional. 

 

How would you describe your work?

Being autistic, my work has been always more connected with nature itself, or the connection between humans and nature, which is most often where I get inspired. My work is mindful and raw, often with hidden readings, and it is mostly created under trance or meditation. It is not a fast-food work, you do have to take some time to digest it and go deeper.  

 

 

 

    
The Soul Matters

 

 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

The first time I was confronted with photographic work as art, was at very young age, an exhibition with the wonderful works by Jorge Molder and Helena Almeida, and both influenced a lot my earlier work. Then I discovered Mario Cravo Neto, Mapplethorpe, Eikoh Hosoe, Jungjin Lee, Laurent Millet, George Platt Lynes, Erwin Blumenfeld, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Alberto Garcia-Alix or Francesca Woodman.

What do you want your viewers to take away from your work?

To not just pass by, or “like and scroll down”: to take a break and breathe, to use my work as a meditation pause, to reflect on our connection with nature and with consciousness. To have them as a healing, or meditation image. To go beyond the aesthetic pleasure and go deeper in the concept and meaning without prejudice. It’s wonderful when my clients after purchasing my work tell me that the artwork changed the energy of their places for much better, even though some art collectors buy them just as investment, I’m well aware that my artworks do make a change in the walls of their homes. Although, I must say that was overwhelming when I saw an art-photograph of mine in the same wall along with Egon Schiele, Jean Cocteau and Degas.

Portfolio of the day

December 11, 2017

 

Who are you?

I'm a French illustrator and painter, I was born in the south of France in 1975. I started drawing and painting before I could even write, an activity which to-date, I have never stopped doing. While being an intern at a major advertising agency in Paris, whose budget went to the beauty and luxury industry, I became a freelance storyboarder for some Parisian art agencies. I drew for Dior, Vuitton or Jean-Paul Gaultier, Guerlain... Thanks to this first job, my drawing and style improved and gave birth to an illustrator. My favorite topic is woman, I like to paint women taking their time, drinking coffee, enjoying a moment for themselves.

I drew some campaigns for Swatch, Macy's, Avantura Mall (Miami)... The fashion collection of Tommy Hilfiger, Loro Piana and illustrated the posts of Elle magazine and The Telegraph...
 

Bringing in an atmosphere is my quest. The sketches I made during my travels allow me to bring in this atmosphere. I work with light and shadow, not the outline, in order to get the real depth and dimensions of the subject. Japanese painter and African pattern are an inspiration — the first for the purity and efficacy in the stroke, the second for the material and colour. I try to get the same sensibility. I cook the material, the colour and look for the attitude that will enable me to emphasise a personality.

 

 

What is your next creative project?

Currently,  I work for the Chinese brand, Safiya. I draw a story board for Nina Ricci, (I can't tell more). I prepare an exhibition for the Fox gallery in Rome, 14th december 2017. I prepare another exhibition that will take place in Bruxelles in october 2018 with my originals paintings.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I like its simplicity. I'm handling this all by myself and it offers nice design. It's very important for me to get these two notions. I think the result is clear and professional. I appreciate the French translation of course.

I am a British fashion and editorial photographer based in Leeds & London, UK. My work is a mixture of Fashion and Portrait Photography.

Innovation.

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

Portfolio of the day

November 27, 2017

 

Who are you?

I am a 20-year-old, currently studying for a degree in Neuroscience, and constantly trying to find time to do art on the sidelines. I've always had the creative impulse and have come to accept it as part of my character; and actually art, now, in general, is something I value hugely both for myself and society. My approach is haphazard and unplanned - I simply let whatever inspiration wants to walk my way, walks my way.

 

Often it's the environment I'm living in, or current and historical artists I discover in books or on the internet. So far I've been focussing on depicting single individuals and affairs, but I can kind of forsee that in the future I'll engage myself more with large-scale geopolitical events and humanitarian issues as a whole - since, if anything, your scope as an artist tends to grow larger and broader before diminishing again into something particular (the thing you become known for). 

 

What is your next creative project?

Right now I'm simply trying to improve my skill in every area - wet media, dry media, photography etc. - and so haphazardly experimenting in every direction, being prepared to fail over and over again, and not worrying that things don't always work out. At some point I hope to narrow down this broad media usage into just the one or two I feel most comfortable in, allow a distinctive "style" to develop, and ideally gain in recognition and forge my way forward in the art world.

 

Obviously, it is every artists dream to go where none have gone before and really leave an impact and a legacy on the human race... so if I'm doing anything purposeful right now, it is naturally in pursuit of that dream.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I found it incredibly satisfying and easy to use Portfoliobox - something I was very grateful for, as I'd tried out a fair few website builders before that which didn't work out. I was thankful for the range of styles on offer and the large number of opportunities for customisation. It's so important, I think, to allow people to develop a site accurate and faithful to that vivid fantasy they most probably had floating around in their head. I certainly feel I was able to create roughly the site I "wanted", and wasn't overly-limited by the developers' decisions. However, I would have appreciated a larger degree of flexibility on the design of the mobile format.
