Throughout the years I stood witness to everything going faster and faster, leading to regrettable effects of depersonalization in the way people record and convey their experiences. In contrast, I choose a slower, more personal method.

Frederick Feyfer (born in Leuven, 1977) is a graphic designer and illustrator. Annually, he digitally disconnects and travels to remote places with a backpack filled with art supplies to unwind.
He forms a personal bond with each subject he sketches, starting on-site and often completing in hotel rooms or bars. His colourful exotic drawings and paintings, varying from quick sketches to day-long projects, reflect a deep connection with each scene.
He draws inspiration from local daily life and a range of cultural expressions, including architecture, billboards, signage, textiles, etc. Through his background in graphic design, he frequently integrates typography into his artwork by adding hand-lettered text and titles.
