So who is this Marijn Dionys? He studied furniture and interior design and has actually even worked as a carpenter and cabinetmaker. He expanded his competences to the domain of comic book drawing and illustration. When not working full-time as a carpenter (to be able to build his own house, for example), he has time for his freelance projects for illustrations, cartoons, comics and photographs. Marijn's imagination flows so rich that there's no need for him to make the same thing twice. Music and music media are a strong current in his images, like groovy Theodore in The Invention of Scratchin'. Through photographs Marijn unveils his kinky side, like in Bananaphone and Deejay. In illustrations such as The Artist in his Basement, if you look very carefully you'll find references to the furniture he designs.
What appeals to Malvina and Aliki? The way he says so much with apparently so little. The more you look, the more you see. When you think you're ready to move on to the next image, you're compelled to look again and that's you discover more. Marijn says a lot, but very quietly.
Though shy to admit it, robots are Marijn's secret passion. He'll whip out a robot when you least expect it. Like this Chicken.
