Biography / Erosie

Eindhoven-based Jeroen Heemann also known as Erosie, is a visual artist, known for his colourful and abstract style that could be interpreted as Matisse-inspired by aficionados of Expressionism. Erosie’s art can be found on concrete as well as on canvas and all over the world.  Erosie collaborated with URBAN NATION on Project M/12 in 2017.

Erosie’s art gives a very mature impression: the formal language is very concise, the colour palette extremely characteristic, his works as a whole appear to have sprung from an artistic quarrel. Given his past, this does not surprise: he graduated with honours from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Amsterdam, has worked as an illustrator and has been a graffiti-artist since 1993. Heeman constantly re-invents himself, always finding new compositions, often culminating in abstract shapes that are nevertheless motivated by an underlying political issue. Aesthetically, his art often reminds Matisse’s late ‘papiers découpés’ phase; calming, abstract views that tickle the viewers’ curiosity on many levels.
