Toto Blaauw is an artist and designer based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Born in 1991 to an Indonesian mother and a Dutch father, Toto has been prolific with his drawings growing up as a kid.
Much later in art school he developed this gift and the skills
to express his truths to a broader audience.

Currently he concentrates on painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture and design.
With his imagery he portrays cosmic truth on contemporary society, history and future. 

The work comes from a place where love, responsibility and cultural background play an important role.
You can find references from surrealism, pop art, various cultures, music and his spiritual beliefs.
Humor is used to give balance to the harsh realities of this world and vibrant colors to convey emotion.
Duality can be found in his characters, symbols and his use of language. Each element affects the other in the creation of the whole.
