Creativity is contagious, pass it on.

ROBERT SCHOLTEN CREATIVE STUDIO

In my work, I often cross boundaries of contemporary art, design, film, fashion and illustration. Generally, I love to get my hands dirty with whatever gets my creativity excited! It is all art, whether it is a wall in a shop or a comic book or a packaging design or a painting. I love making marks on a surface to express myself, whether it be paint strokes on a canvas or digital gestures on a laptop. In a world that loves categorising everything, I find it difficult to do so, and often end up in the description of cross-disciplinary "artist"or something like that. Ultimately, creativity is driven by love.

Drawing Japan: Hirado

Art travel memoir about exploring this island through drawing.

Latest Mural: Hattori Hanzo

Japanese themed mural for Hattori Hanzo restaraunt bar.

Latest painting: Expansion

This is my latest painting in progress, at 2m by 2m in size. It is a semi-abstract monochrome landscape based on the streets of Melbourne, and more specifically, the Carlton area.

 
 

Manifesto

IN THIS POST-POSTMODERN DIGITAL ERA, WE STAND AT A POINT WHERE DISCIPLINES ARE  OVERLAPPING, BLENDING AND PLAYING WITH EACH OTHER. ART IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF THIS BECAUSE IT CREATES VISUALISATION FOR OTHER INDUSTRIES. IT IS ALL ART, WHETHER IT IS A SHOP TO DISPLAY OUR WARES OR A FIT OUT FOR A HOTEL OR A DESIGN FOR PACKAGING OR EXHIBITING AN ARTIST WE ARE OBSESSED WITH, WE ARE ULTIMATELY DRIVEN BY A LOVE FOR ALL THINGS CREATIVE.
