ANTIGOON describes himself as a creative developer with a liking for graphic design and Graphic Machinery. As a teenager, he found a passion for graffiti, so after leaving secondary school he quickly found his way to graphic design.
In Graphic Machinery, he found a space where he can explore things that are difficult to incorporate in his jobs as a web designer. Here the creative process is all about experimenting, hacks, messes, perfect imperfections and fun. For his Graphic Machinery projects, he lets machines work with tools designed for human use. In this process he is using plotters that draw with charcoal, computerized fire extinguishers, spray-can wielding machines and more to create his art work.

"I'm not someone who likes to be in the spotlight or talk a lot about myself (...) The work is important, the person behind it much less" - ANTIGOON

Analogue and digital both require a different approach, and combining them is filled with problems, thus new challenges arise as a result. Due to his unconventional process, Antigoon never knows exactly what the result will look like: the machine forces him to reconsider the design.
