Bas van Genugten used to live in Eindhoven, an exciting industrial town in the south of The Netherlands, but swapped this for Sydney, Australia – which is nice too. He studied at Grafisch Lyceum Eindhoven (majoring Visualisation) and Art Academy St. Joost Breda (majoring Animation). He has a healthy love for the act of drawing and knows how to screenprint too. His work ranges from illustration to video, graphic design to animation, vj-material to photography.
Just before his global move he released the booklet “I would like to be on the cover of a magazine (I would like to brush my teeth with gasoline)”.
His work appeared in the Belgian magazine Gonzo, Dutch online literary magazine De Optimist, online art magazine Hard//hoofd, Gigposters.com Coloringbook II and III, on cd-covers of bands and several other things.
Ow, and there’s plenty of activity on the internet:
If you find any reason to contact Bas van Genugten, please don’t hesitate to do so. He’s very happy to enlighten your world with his silly, subtle, amusing, hilarious, distressing, aggravating, depressing, brain-damaging and unnecessary drawings:
