Eric Van Straaten

"In the process that is best known under the name ‘Additive Manufacturing’, a 3D-printer builds up a model layer by layer by selectively hardening liquid or powder. If this powder is a plaster-like material, a model can be directly printed in full color. The 3D-printing of delicate and colored models require great technical skills. Therefore only a few specialize in this technique and there is no artist who pushes the boundaries colorized 3D-prints as far as Eric van Straaten."

"I was born in 1969 in the Dutch city of Leiden and grew up in Haarlem. From the age of about 17 I have always wanted to be an ‘artist’, and after a career that we call in Dutch ’12 trades, 13 accidents’ (more or less successful photographer, musician, actor, journalist, entrepreneur and sculptor in wax and resin) at 40 years of age, I suddenly started to sell my 3D-printed artworks through a couple of galleries that believed in my works."
