Wilhelmusvlug is a contemporary artist whose main focus for the last 15 years has been on monumental light art and video art installations.
During his first year of study at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Modern Art in Amsterdam, he formed the notorious art duo “The Art Brothers” with his class mate Peter Hertogh. Together they created a universe of their own and got instant recognition with their strange and wonderful theatrical performances.
While still at art school, they were asked to create performances in the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, on TV & radio shows, and performed in concert halls like Paradiso Amsterdam. After 10 years they split up as a duo and Wilhelmusvlug’s work changed from performance to painting and design for theatre, clubs, and festivals.
His work has been commissioned by the Amsterdam Light Festival, Manifesto, the Kit Kat Club Berlin, the Gay Pride, Wasteland, Amsterdam Fashion Week, Schiphol International Airport, the city of Amsterdam, and Juliana International Airport, among others.
Wilhelmusvlug lives and works in the countryside just north of Amsterdam.
