Jan Willem Campmans

Jan Willem Campmans

Jan Willem Campmans’ work is free and multidisciplinary. Campmans connects extremes and creates contrasts; both conceptual and in choice of material. He likes to play with the perception of his work.The associations of the spectator play an important part in the essence of the story that Jan Willem tells through his work, with which he hopes to evoke idiosyncratic and ambiguous questions.

I like to pose questions that don’t have clear answers to initiate a discussion in relation to my work.

Jan Willem believes that inspiration is everywhere and can come from anything. “In my case it often starts with a playful and analytical process with many ‘mistakes’ that often lead to new insights. I like to pose questions that don’t have clear answers to initiate a discussion in relation to my work.”

 

Being an autonomous artist, Jan Willem mostly focuses on making art. To him, design is an adventure, in terms of concept and practicality. The Kalasjni soft toy concept was inspiring. Jan Willem is thinking about creating a series of iconic cuddly guns and, in the mind of Christo, ‘cuddlinizing’ a few larger weapons.

JAN WILLEM CAMPMANS BY BASEMATTERS

 

Basematters presents from Jan Willem Campmans the Kalasjniknuffel.

 

In this day and age, the combination of a soft toy and an iconic weapon such as the Kalashnikov should raise a number of questions. Jan Willem Campmans combines the two themes, which seem to be miles apart, but appear to go together so well.
