Artistikoi Productions

Photographer / Website

Tikoi Kuitenbrouwer (1977) completed his studies in photography at the academy in Maastricht in 2002. To keep his photography autonomous, he focused on making short films for television, music videos and visual teaching materials. Currently, he works primarily as a set designer and there is room again to give photography a more prominent role.

Using his iPhone, Tikoi intuitively creates double shot portraits. Besides the basic ingredients, the subject, composition and story, coincidence also plays a major role in his photographs.

De Langzame Mannen

The Slow Men are time travellers, dealers in illusion. Their main feat is Fat Bertha, a Victorian-looking, coal-fired espresso machine. They take you back to the days of the industrial revolution. When soot clouds obscured the sun and men were made of steel. Coffee was black gold, which now still flows from Fat Bertha.

At the moment the Slow Men are preparing time travelling trips to the Middle Ages, colonial South America and the court of Louis XV.

Leon de Bruijne

Visual Artist / Website / E-mail

Artist Leon de Bruijne (NL, 1992) makes moving sculptures and performances. His machines, which are often large and noisy, are made up of objects from everyday life that are put to the test. The works playfully confront our efficiently technologised society. His ‘Christmas tree cannon’ is brought out every year to herald the New Year in absurd ways. Leon obtained a Master of Fine Arts at the KASK in Ghent.

Slide Slide Slide


My work is about places and areas, their genesis and transformations. The starting point is (cultural-historical) research into the region. Findings from archives, maps, literature, observations and interviews are visually translated into illustrations, material tests, models and temporary installations on location. A visual library of objects and models is created that contributes to telling the story of the research area.

The final result is a translation of the research into an appealing on-site sculpture or object that conveys a tangible story about the area.

Maaike Fransen

Visual Artist / Website / E-mail

Maaike Fransen (b. 1987) is a multidisciplinary artist who dreams with her hands. Her work takes place at the intersection between fashion, design, performance and film. Using found materials as a basis, she makes hybrid objects that are somewhere between functional objects and autonomous sculptures, often with the human body as a starting point. These objects are then used in performances and films, in which Fransen both places herself at the centre of her work and tries to disappear into it. Central to her work are personal and topical themes such as social engineering, individualisation, and the tension between the desire for freedom and the need for security. The question of how art and life, work and being, can coincide, runs like a red thread through her oeuvre.

Niels de Groot

Painter / Website / E-mail

In 1991, Niels de Groot (Hoevelaken, 1966) graduated from the renowned Rijks Hogeschool voor de Kunst in Brussels.

Besides decorative commissions, such as painting a trompe l’oeil, marble and wood imitations and murals, he spends most of his time in his own studio at Het Domijn. There he paints his expressive landscapes (free and on commission) in which his own style is clearly recognisable. His passion is painting ‘plein air’ landscapes.

Peter ter Maten

Besides free work as an independent artist, I also make sculptures on commission.

I was taught the art of sculpting in marble in Italy from the old masters who passed on their craft for generations. Thus, I was trained as an Italian classical sculptor. Besides my own work, I teach sculpture. The fun part of sculpting is doing it.

For more information and an overview of my work, I invite you to visit my website.

Platform Nexus

Interdisciplinary Collective / Website / E-mail

Rachel Schuit, Goda Žukauskaitė, Tamar Blom, Han Ruiz Buhrs and Neal Groot. We are Nexus.

We are a group of 6 makers from different disciplines who have come together to create a creative platform. We are all installation and performance makers whose starting points are body and space. This way we move between theatre, dance and visual art. Our space at Het Domijn is not just workspace, studio or workshop. We see it as a breeding ground, a home for creativity and experimentation. A place where making crosses thinking and spatiality becomes a physical subject.

Rob Birza

Visual Artist / Website / E-mail

After finishing the Sint Joost Academy in Breda, I completed the Ateliers, where I am now a supervisor. I mainly make paintings but also installations and sculptures. My work mostly takes place at the intersection of figuration and abstraction. Transformation is a connecting element, the unstable position between two stages, the place where high and low, beautiful and ugly coincide.

Rob Thijssen

To work freely as a visual artist, Rob Thijssen has always taken on work as a designer ( architectural- interior,- furniture- and graphic).  This is an excellent combination: the art becomes more effective; the designs freer.

He is also a driving force of the Art in Redlight Foundation (, which, among other things, organises the annual modern art fair “This art Fair” in the Beurs van Berlage in the heart of Amsterdam.

Visual Artist / Website

Examples of the work he has created include: an interactive projection on the floor with sound, a ‘social musical instrument’ that uses the electrical conduction of skin, a chalk robot that draws on pavement, kinetic light art and video projections on an architectural scale.

Although this kind of work is mostly created by technological means, he does not find the technology itself particularly interesting. It is about the search for what can be created using contemporary resources for artistic experience.

Studio Smeerolie (grease) collects stories and creates encounters. She makes objects that provoke conversations, organises food installations that make you experience taste differently and designs disruptive ‘services’.

Tessa Hendriks works community-based and site-specific. With whatever and whoever is available on site, she creates treehouse-like social sculptures. She uses the tree house as a medium to explore her environment.

As a teaching artist, she makes temporary workshops to create spaces where senses, hands and imagination can work together to construct new possibilities with others.

Her ongoing research into how children build, fail, improvise, play and endlessly make, is the source of her work.

Thijs Wieman

Visual Artist / Website / E-mail

Multidisciplinary, autonomous artist Thijs Wieman makes installations, videos and drawings. He also teaches and has worked many years as a theater maker.

Wieman uses sampling in both his installations and drawings. He takes fragments of existing, sometimes recognisable images out of their context and merges them into a new work. As a result, the images enter into a new relationship with each other from which new meaning might arise.

“I take advantage of our need for an understandable story, but in the elaborately detailed image, I want to leave meaning in the dark.”
