Storytelling Artist Toshy
Toshy is a storyteller. He is a messenger. Toshy - an artist from the Netherlands (Breda 1970), is a multidisciplinary artist working in vast art fields. Toshy started his art career around the age of sixteen as a graffiti artist. And the graffiti style never disappears from his artworks. Being multidisciplinary, Toshy likes to intertwine his skills in illustration, music composing, graphic/product/interior design, typography, videography, photography, and copywriting to create a new style of communication. Communication becomes the main topic, the main idea behind his artworks. Plenty of his art pieces have the message delivered and exposed right on the canvas. Declarations, such as "Fear nothing but yourself," "Be One in a Million be a light to others," "Love Now," "Hold on to what you believe in," and many more, are not only acting as inspiring quotes but also as an inner statement of the artist himself.
Toshy recently started his fashion line, rug collection, and first 18k jewel broadening the art understanding and erasing the lines of where art concepts should begin and where they should end. Toshy is very active on social media, sharing his daily journey through art and sending love to everyone. For Toshy, art is about messages and stories to tell.
Toshy describes his style as; positive messages transformed into products with an urban but luxurious design
Art in every possible form, storytelling art!
