Joris De Raedt

When I first met Joris in real life it was a grey Sunday and I was stuck in what you could call 'the dark side ' : what a harsh world, poor me, will never survive this, oh unbearable lightness of being,...' You know the feeling when your weekend is over before it started, you can't keep up with anything, spill coffee everywhere, forget to eat and can't remember where you left... everything!

In this condition I arrived in joris universe... He gave me coffee & cookies and told me stories about extinct species, orange deserts, cliffs in Norway and why baby birds have a white dot on their beak (because their mum can feed them in the dark). A humble kind of peace and quiet came over me. Going through his work I gained even more respect for him, he sits at his desk for days and days to create the perfect drawing. His technique and love for nature are admirable. 

Joris is a photographer, scientific illustrator and grafic artist, but for Postuum he will offer a selection of illustrations, carefully picked out to match our philosophy. I could recommend everyone living in the city to go and take a walk with Joris in one of the natural preserves where he lives, it beats therapy, mindfullness and yoga all together. In his short carreer he already won some important titles and prices, but not nearly enough if you ask me.

I am very proud that he wanted to be part of Postuum, he is pure, talented, honest and has an excellent eye for aesthetics. I dare you to take a look at his drawings and don't go all “Is this real? Can't be. Sure it's not a photo? Really sure? This guy is crazy. I want one. “

Louise Te Poele

Louise te Poele 1984, lives and works in Arnhem. Louise is a photographer-artist who tries to capture a story from a close angle. The paintings of Louise are actually self-portraits.
As a kid an untidy room was what made her happy, little animals, smelly old flowers, clutter and mess.

The objects were precious to her and she made 'impossible' things out of them. She carefully builds up compositions in her studio.
When everything is in the right place she takes a picture which is used to digitally draw the same composition. The appearance of the work lies somewhere between a 17th century still life and a modern picture.

She combines the old and the new, technology and tradition and therefor appealed to us. Her work was a real discovery, very renewing in subject and technique.

Leen Boden

In a way Leen and the jewelry she creates seem very similar, they make you suspect a process of strong focus, technique, silence and discipline.
On the other hand the jewelry speaks for itself, with its in-your-face aesthetics and harmonious proportions and choice of material.
While Leen doesn't really talk all that much, there is this silent, peaceful modesty around her that is both comforting and confronting.
It's clear she communicates through her work in a very authentic way.
We can only cheer for that.
For 2 months she will offer a bracelet on Postuum, custom made and exclusively available in the online store.
This gives you the time to get to know her while we are planning a joint venture behind the scenes.
Don't worry we will provide the occasional sneak peek.

Sold?

As you might notice a lot of the items in store are already sold.
Well, the thing is...
that the techniques we use take time and the material isn't always easy to find.
This means that a lot of the objects on the site were made on demand.
But look at it on the bright side, It also means that you can order something, and it will be a pièce unique.
So, I suggest you look around, enjoy the aesthetics, read the stories, and send me a message if you have a question or you would like to order something that is sold out.

Viktor Leestmans

Viktor Leestmans is this unique figure that you only meet a few times in your life.

His whole life moves around animals, insects, nature, technology and every possible connection there is to find between these aspects.

He is a master in beauchene technique and provides Belgium and beyond with butterflies, beetles and scorpions to decorate your home. Viktor is always busy learning about the art of taxidermy, discorvering the fascinating world of insects and mechanics.

In a non classical way he uses natural materials to reconstruct and create new animals, forms and shapes. He creates new 3D objects and stories from what others may see as garbage or useless. We like that!

His atelier is like a haven, a fairytale for anyone who has a weakness for 'pretty creepy' things and silence...we love and share his fascination for nature and art so therefore we proudly present some of his work here and hope you appreciate as much as we do.
