Digitally manipulated images by artist Robert Rickhoff, graduate of Crossmedia Design at ArtEZ Enschede in Netherlands, will definitely make you look twice at them. The series of his work called “Out of Place” is provocative and fun at the same time. The artist tried to joke around our daily routine and familiar places and his ideas resulted into very fresh and realistic pictures.
“I think without a concept, there’s nothing. Having found the concept, it´s a question of communicating this in the clearest and shortest way. Nothing superfluous or that can´t be justified, everything for a reason and everything with a function. There´s no room here for I like that or I don´t like that, there is only room for it´s effective or not. I am interested in finding ideas that will be remembered effectively and draw attention”, Rickhoff says.
