Tomas Schats (Eindhoven, The Netherlands 1976)

Study: Academy of Fine Arts, Den Bosch 1997-2001


Tomas Schats makes clear line animations and drawings from which everything superfluous has been omitted. 

They are miniatures created in pencil and displayed against a blindingly clean and white background. 

The narratives he tells are layered and occasionally take unexpected turns. Tomas Schats says himself: 

'In their minimal linearity, these animations resemble cartoons but they are, in their simplicity, more lyrical 

and more ambiguous, wry, but nevertheless light-footed. They are based on reality, but transcend it is a subtle manner. 

They tell stories about humankind, with all its possibilities and limitations.
