ABOUT

Wendy van Santen and Hans Bolleurs are a Dutch artist couple.
They are photographers, directors, thinkers and makers working
with everyday items to create images, videos, objects and installations. 

Van Santen & Bolleurs create work
at the intersection of art, sculpture,
graphic design and photography.

They play with concepts, colours, textures and light to create surreal situations
that make you marvel at the stuff that surrounds us everyday. With bold colours
and minimalist compositions they aim to create a weird and wonderful world.
