Hi! I am Bibi van de Laar, I make day of the dead art.
I paint holy statues in day of the dead or dia de los Muertos- style and kustom style art. I’ve always liked skulls and things like Vanitas Paintings for exactly the meaning it has: death is part of life and life should be celebrated. This combined with all the bright colors and patterns connected to this south American holiday got me to do what I do.
What I love about Saints and Sinners, is the great respect and appreciation towards each others work between the artists there. SnS artists inspire each other and help each other out by giving advice where ever they can.
I didn’t do any courses, had no artistic education what so ever, I just do what I like, and learn during the process. It so happens I love everything that goes along with this Kustom Kulture scene: the art, old bikes and cars, tattoos and of course the music. I definitely enjoy what I do, I hope you do too..
See you at Saints&Sinners!!
