Hidde van Schie (1978) made his first appearance in the theatre show Shopping & Fucking by Toneelgroep de Trust in 1997, but then graduated as a painter from the Willem de Kooning academy in 2001. Since then he has been working on a multifaceted oeuvre consisting of drawings, collages, sculptures and paintings. In 2002 he won one of the Bunning Brongers prizes for painting. His compositions of wild jungles, hairy giants and crying birds are painted with supple gestures, in a characteristic style and palette. In addition to his visual work he is a versatile musician. Succeeding earlier instrumental releases he made his debut as a singer-songwriter with the release of The Mirror & The Razorblade / Dusty Diamond Eyes in 2013.
