Gert-Jan Akerboom

Gert-Jan Akerboom is a Dutch digital artist and animator based in Berlin, Germany. Akerboom’s artwork have taken many forms in the past years, with the most recent being an expansion of his digital skills through high resolution 3D animation.

Every interaction, whether conscious or not, serves as inspiration for Akerboom. Dark and eerie imagery are particularly fascinating to him. His work is often influenced by his interest in science, culture, astronomy, and mathematics. He takes pride in a “lack of style” and intentionally goes out of his way to create artwork that is unlike anything most viewers have ever seen. 

Art serves as a visual diary for Akerboom: Creating allows for him to explore the universe, free from restraints of logic and facts. Visual translations provide a method of communicating ideas that are not easily expressed in words. Akerboom’s creations are best described as fully immersive visual experiences, which transport viewers to new, mysterious worlds where the deepest wonderings of the mind are transformed into visual experiences.

Since 2009, Akerboom’s work has been exhibited in over 50 galleries and institutions across the world. His immersive, sensory visual experiences are highly coveted amongst collectors across digital art communities.

Void Island

Akerboom’s latest series release takes viewers on a night journey to Void Island, a perimeter boundary that is floating through the empty space between dimensions and universes. Akerboom provides a glimpse into the activities, ecology, and inhabitants of the island through vivid first person journeys that appeal to all the senses. Muted color palettes, consisting mainly of black, white and grays highlight a sense of quiet and mystery, while constant movement and sound include the viewer in the vitality of the island.
