Rianne Blekkenhorst is an Amsterdam area based graphic designer working at the intersection of the fine arts. Having worked in the film industry (scenery), she developed a love for identity, human expectations, social perception and (un)reality. She uniquely discovers and highlights what is not necessarily matter of course. Observing the situation by changing perspective and time, she is able to interpret complex stories and issues into new concepts and identities. This is the core of her visual translation into the printed, drawn, or the digital medium.
