Dutch visual artist, Jeroen Heeman, better known as Erosie is one of the participant artists at the 2nd edition of the Palma Festival, currently taking place in Caen and Mondeville, France until tomorrow April 9, 2017.

The work of Erosie is deeply rooted in different disciplines, from graffiti to conceptual art, from illustration to typography, all disciplines that he connects together in order to express personal experiences and thought. In his work he constantly evolves, looking for a friction between intuitive approaches and conceptual frameworks, while constantly gaining new insights.

Erosie, who started doing graffiti in 1993, graduating with honours from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam and later working as a professional illustrator. During the last years he gradually developed a more abstract visual language becoming a key figure in a new muralist era.

According to the artist, this is a series he has been developing for several years on the interpretation of language, and where the letters he draws appear as silhouettes on this fresco. (source)

In case you are around, you will find it at 51, rue de la Gare in Caen.
