As an artist I can do my own thing

“As a designer I’m used to focus on the needs of the user. As an artist I can do my own thing. I don’t worry about the public and their opinions. I believe there are way too much opinions out there and I believe it’s turning people sour. It makes people narrow minded and loose their colour. People who want to do good are called snowflakes, feminists are a bunch of wining women and refugees are only here to take our jobs… I want to bring something that’s not so complicated. It’s colour, it’s beauty, it’s the love I put into my work in the hope it brings you joy. And if it doesn’t… that’s ok. Maybe you’ll find it elsewhere.”

Always revolving style

My By Kimenai style contains a lot of graphic elements. I have a main focus on women portraits. At the moment I have a bit of a love & hate relationship with women. They can be so mean and sneaky but at the same time I’m convinced that women are so not the weaker sex and we can save the world. (I can be a bit of a feminist even though I hate the word feminist). But I am a designer on the run so my style keeps evolving. You can follow By Kimenai on this artistic journey.
