The base of Michiel Schuurman’s graphic work is a certain logic – whether natural, scientific or historical. Geeky algorithms, natural phenomena or historical patterns are applied in his design process in innovative new ways. The divine mandala pattern or fungal growth can be a starting point. Schuurman takes the essence of these ‘logics’ and adds new contexts by layering, twisting and adding his signature alienating bold colour schemes. It results in visually dazzling graphics that feel completely sensible, yet include a mean dose of visual friction. “People are shocked by the extreme logic of my work”, says Schuurman.
