"Big Mother," a New Book by Raymond LemstraJuxtapoz // Friday, 25 Apr 2014
Dutch artist and illustrator Raymond Lemstra, who we interviewed back in December, has recently come out with a new book published by Nobrow. Inspired by primitive art, Raymond Lemstra focuses on using the most basic components of drawing to evoke a visceral human response. The world Lemstra continues to build with every drawing is both subdued and wonderfully rich, full of mystery and totemic power. "I would happily embrace any comparison to how a kid starts drawing," said Lemstra in our December interview, in which he expands on the primitive technique, being an illustrator, his childhood in the Netherlands and hanging out with Moebius.
