Biography / SIT

Dutch artist SIT left the commercial industry in 2008 to get back to basic, working with his hands. Since then he developed a unique style of sculptures, murals and paintings. His works can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/1 in 2014.

SIT was born in 1976; he lives and works in Amsterdam. He was working in the creative industry for a long time but then decided to return to the craft. Black, white and grey tones are as predominant in his works as there is a certain feeling of discomfort. Showing the inevitable loss of beauty in his paintings and sculptures underline the banality of everyday life – often reduced to appearance, look and materialism. SIT’s characters are linked to a disturbing analysis of our time, “Where human vanity comes in the way of a truly ethical life”. SIT calls the ambiguity between the temptation of beauty and our constant urge to abuse her as the driving force behind his work. He participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Asia and the U.S.
