Rudy-Jan Faber, b. 1981 Drachten, the Netherlands, is an illustrator and painter working and living in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. Rudy studied graphic design, illustration and is a bachelor graduate in Multimedia Design, minoring in Game Design. After his graduation Rudy has worked two years as a full time concept artist for an indie game developer.
Rudy’s personal oeuvre can not be defined within one single style or movement as he loves working in various styles, ranging from cartoons to realism, and works both in digital as traditional media. Although Rudy is an artist who’s regularly switching back and forth between obsessive artistic phases and ventures, certain themes are often recurring. Themes such as influenced by his love for tattoos, Rock ‘n Roll, Americana and Japanese art and folklore are often very apparent, as well as the female figure usually taking the lead role in his work.
“I don’t like to focus on just one particular style or medium. My interests and influences are way to broad to try and grab a piece from those and work it into one particular style that I’ve been specializing in. That’s incredibly boring to me. I want to do as much as I possibly can and master it all within my lifetime.”
