Artist-project by Han Hoogerbrugge
Han Hoogerbrugge’s animation Parade is inspired by the historic, emblematic painting of the Belgian expressionist and surrealist James Ensor (1860 – 1949), Christ’s Entry into Brussels (1889). The artist transformed a Range Rover into an iconic art work about masses, movement and individuality.
Han Hoogerbrugge, Rotterdam (The Netherlands), is an artist, illustrator, and animator whose work spans diverse media. He is regarded as one of the pioneers of internet art and has become known for the animations he has posted regularly on the net since the end of the 1990s. His work explores the contemporary human condition through animations such as the Modern Living/Neurotica series (1998-2001), Nails (2002-2007) and the absurdist online comic
Prostress 2.0 (2008 – present).
Hoogerbrugge presents an existentialist view of life at the dawn of the twenty first century and his work deals with timeless concerns and issues such as ageing, fear, sex, death, religion, and alienation.
Apart from his video animations and his work as a visual artist, Hoogerbrugge has also made a number of music videos for The Pet Shop Boys, The Young Punx and Dead Man Ray. He also contributes weekly illustrations for the Dutch National Newspaper De Volkskrant.
