CV:

Wolf Aartsen, Eindhoven 14-02-1985  Currently based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Education: Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht (2004-2008)

Sometimes subtle and sometimes hard in your face: taken on adventure in Wolf Aartsen’s multidisciplinary world the viewer swings between extremes: pop culture and underground, reality and fantasy, ugliness and beauty, humor and dead serious business. In his black drawings, colourful paintings and vibrant vocal compositions he creates wicked little worlds, filled with shapes and darkness that might be familiar to one, and experienced as an aesthetic brain fuck to the other.

Meegenomen op avontuur langs verschillende disciplines, wordt de bezoeker – soms subtiel en gevoelig, soms hard in your face – heen en weer geslingerd tussen uitersten; popcultuur en underground, realiteit en fantasie, lelijkheid en schoonheid, humor en bittere ernst.

about Zoro Inca:

With his prominent appearance and his voice as an instrument Zoro Inca takes us on a ride in his original world full of trumpets, bizarre sounds, complete choirs, thriving beats and soulful vocals. His voice provides him with seemingly endless possibilities to create compositions on the spot improvising and responding to the specific context of the moment.

Met alleen zijn stem als instrument neemt Zoro Inca ons mee in zijn eigenzinnige wereld vol blazers, bizarre geluiden, complete koren, opzwepende beats en soulvolle vocalen. Zijn stem biedt hem haast onbegrensde mogelijkheden om grotendeels improviserend te reageren op de context en steeds weer nieuwe, verrassende composities te creëren.
