Toto Blaauw is an Amsterdam based artist who concentrates on drawing, printmaking, painting, design and art direction.
With his graphic imagery he portrays his thoughts and truth on contemporary society, history and the future. 
In his work you find references from his Indonesian heritage, spiritual beliefs and past art, music and film. He’s always exploring innovative links between traditional and digital techniques. Humor is used to give balance to serious subjects and bright colors to convey emotions. Duality can be found in all his characters, symbols and his use of language. Each element affects the other in the creation of the whole.
