Wilhelmusvlug studied Audiovisual at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy of Modern Art in Amsterdam. In his first year 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. Still at art school they were asked to create performances in the museum of modern art Boymans van Beuningen, on tv & radio shows, and performed in concert halls like Paradiso Amsterdam. After 10 years they split up as a duo, and his work changed from performance to painting and designs for theatre, clubs and festivals.
Last 15 years his main focus is on monumental Light Art and Video Art Installations. His work is commissioned by the Amsterdam Light Festival, Manifesto, the Kit Kat Club, the Gay Pride, Wasteland, Amsterdam Fashion Week, Schiphol International Airport, the city of Amsterdam, Juliana International Airport and more.
Wilhelmusvlug lives and works in the countryside just north of Amsterdam.
