Stefan Glerum (1983) lives and works in Amsterdam.
He spent four years in Breda studying illustration at the Academy St. Joost. He used to be the assistant to one of the most celebrated comic artists of his country, Joost Swarte. Stefan Glerum’s style is like a mix of an illustration heritage. With its subconscious familiarity and universal appeal, his work is also a « study point » for those with knowledge in the history of graphic design.
His work is inspired by the early 20th Century movements such as Art Deco, Bauhaus, Italian Futurism and Russian Constructivism. He combines popular themes, executed in a style reminiscent of the clear line.
