Art and Culture
Art is in the DNA of Leolux. And that's why the Leolux Experience Center in Breukelen also features many works by international artists. Usually they are in the furniture sets, but the most prominent work of art can be found at the advice square. That's where the work Two Orange Lines 43 by Dutch artist Thomas Trum hangs. A fascinating work, created especially for the Experience Centre. The work was created in a unique way, using a 'suped-sized' felt-tip pen. Videographer Yuta Sawamura followed the creation of the work:
Thomas Trum (1989) works on the intersection of art and design. Most of his work revolves around a material research of paint and techniques to apply this. Using the studio as a place for experiment, he looks into unconventional ways to paint on paper, canvas or walls. For example, he used a super-sized felt pen, a machine for road line marking and brushes attached to a drill. His very active way of working is often based on trial-and-error: the result of his actions is never pre-determined, keeping enthusiasm and velocity part of the end result.
His work is represented in collections of the Noord Brabants Museum, Erasmus University Rotterdam, Akzo Nobel Art foundation, NN group, Ministry of education culture and science (OCW), Ministry of infrastructure and water managment and the Royal collection.
As beautiful as the video documentary is; Thomas Trum's work is at its most beautiful when you see it with your own eyes. So be sure to drop by the Leolux Experience Center Breukelen!
