About Joris Graaf

  • Biography

    In his moody, abstract paintings and digital photo art, self-taught visual artist Joris Graaf (The Hague, 1980) seeks to create tension by forming a synthesis of opposites: noise and melody, order and chaos, growth and decay. Purely driven by emotion, his work revolves around themes such as loneliness, fear and depression. Music and the associated visuals, such as album covers, are a strong influence. There is no story or message in his work. It is about creating atmosphere, about making the viewer feel something. 

    Joris was recently selected for New Dutch Photography Talent 2019 and the first edition of Fresh Eyes by GUP magazine. 

    "FRESH EYES celebrates the best photography talent in Europe. It is a book presenting the 100 greatest emerging photographers the continent has to offer. The first edition, FRESH EYES 2019, was launched in June."
