Podcast: 5 Questions to Bobbi Essers

Scrolling through this artist’s Instagram, you find yourself lost in a dizzying collage of high-flash snapshot paintings of bare skin, clothes and youth.

This is the work of Bobbi Essers; currently based in Groningen, the Netherlands. Her work is based on digital photographs she takes from personal encounters with her close friends, and portrays the close-up details of those she holds dear to her in a magnetic and earnest way. In this way, she is able to present queerness and friendship through a lens that is personal and authentic.

In collaboration with Bobbi, we have produced an Art Fix limited edition of two of her works: ‘Voracious’ and ‘00s Party’ – you can find more information on these on the ‘Editions’ page.

We sat down with the artist to learn more about her creative process and how she brings her paintings to life. Check out the podcast below, or listen to it on Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
