Hello! My name is Tineke Troost and I make zen art, visual poetry and abstract comics. My style is bold and simple, yet also playful and ensouled.
My work is influenced by comics. Ever since i was young, i have been fascinated by their visual language, seeming simplicity, and humor. Moreover, comics provide a space where everything is possible, where even the laws of nature can be overruled. This ultimate freedom allows one (me, you, everyone!) to be yourself and to express yourself, as long as you manage to let go of other people’s rules (not always easy of course). My search for freedom resolves around combining comics with fine art. This has led me to the field of abstract comics, and from there to comic poetry ('stripgedichten') which provide the reader the freedom to form their own story about them. I hartedly hope you enjoy the result!
