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. “

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.
