About

I’m Bob Mollema. An artist from Bennekom who lives and works in Utrecht.

What really inspires me are ancient civilizations. Within these populations I am interested in all the different notions of the end times. I wonder if these are not metaphorical stories, but rather eyewitness accounts of universal catastrophes. I feel that in these turbulent times we are also working towards a universal catastrophe. As an artist, I want to investigate how I can summarize our time in images. Because what if an archaeologist finds remains of our time in 2000 years?

With this vision I make drawings, paintings. music and sculptures. In addition, I participate in projects that have a social impact by questioning a certain political movement or institution.

Every now and then I am asked by a magazine, agency or band to make drawings. I am very selective about this because I think it is important to always keep in touch with vision.
