The art of Dutch artist Handiedan involves a complex cut and paste mixture of computer montage and hand cut collages. Intricate and meticulously crafted, the collages represent the gradual accumulation of layers. Over a backdrop of baroque and Victorian Neo-Classicism designs culled from international currencies and stamps, antique sheet music ornaments, playing cards, sigar bands, Asian papers and personal items, the artist fuses classic pin-up girl body parts, with the occasion recourse to digital wizardry, scissors and a steady hand to create her own version of beauty.Handiedan builds up so many layers in her collages that the surfaces stand out in relief and it becomes a game to spot motifs that reappear from one work to another. The impish doodled avatar peppered throughout on the tattooed lushed pin-up girls with pen scratches and doodles all over the collage either on paper, old wood or rusty metal.Handiedan’s artwork has been shown throughout the world including Musée La Halle St. Pierre, Thinkspace Gallery, Roq la Rue, Phone Booth Gallery, Spoke Art, Unit 44, Black Book Gallery andMondo Bizzarro Gallery and has been featured in several books, magazines and blogs including HiFructose,Juxtapoz, IdN Magazine and Victionary.This year Handiedan has exhibited with a sold-out solo show at Thinkspace Gallery in Culver Cityand her art was on view at the museum exhibtion “HEY! Modern Art & Pop Culture II” at Musée La Halle Saint Pierre in Paris.
