    Rotterdam-based visual artist Iwan Smit has been attracted to art from a young age. Initially, he wanted to become a cartoonist. But he slowly became more drawn to different art forms, ranging from paintings and sculptures to light works. He uses bright colors and depicts many heavy themes in his work, giving the seemingly lighthearted pieces a dark twist.

    The campaign photo was shot in front of the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, a great icon of Rotterdam. Over the years, the museum has commissioned Iwan to do several works, including a painting titled The mystical birth of Rotterdam. He incorporated more Rotterdam icons in this painting, like the historical figure Desiderius Erasmus, famous sculptures, architectural highlights, and symbolism. Rotterdam is literally reflected in his work, and thus Iwan provides a valuable contribution to the city's culture.
