Pieter Drift, graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts in Rotterdam in 1991 (Graphic Design), makes etchings, drawings and collages.

He gives his drawings a literal sense of time, with several partly visible layers. Just like a billboard filled with postings that is affected by the rain.
Underneath the top poster is another poster and another one is under that. You can read all the different stories at once. The title is the finishing touch, and usually adds to or comments on what is happening inside the work.

Besides drawings and etchings Pieter Drift publishes different booklets in-house. In these bundles he combines his two great passions – literature and the visual arts.

WijkTV Malburgen in Arnhem filmed the artist in his studio and interviewed him about his work.
