Luuk van de Grift

Luuk van de Grift is a clasically based illustrator who finds inspiration in nature, the anatomy of the human body and ancient knowledge of a mythical or philosophical nature. He translates these classical subjects to strong black and white images that are printed on clothing and canvas other surfaces. Classic pen and ink drawings are his favourite medium but he also paints murals. His imagery often contains a melancholy dark undertone that is originated in the grunge and metal albumart of the 1980’s but also by todays skateboardculture. His main goal is to archive and spread the craftmanship of himself and the artists around him using PIT as a vessel to spread this to the world.
