English

Harmen Liemburg (NL 1966) started his career as a cartographer. To keep his appetite for graphic representation alive, he sought a larger menu of expression. He went to the Gerrit Rietveld academy and became a member of a new breed of designers, one that is closely linked to the world of art, education and museums.

Liemburg is obsessed with screen printing, and uses the medium to create unexpected results. His approach emphasizes the narrative aspect of images and the occasional beauty of everyday vernacular like logos and packaging design, that are interwoven through collage techniques.

His projects are primarily linked to the transformation of exhibition spaces through the use of printed matter, linking digital tools to analogue methods of printing. Besides being a graphic designer and artist, he’s currently supervising the screenprinting shop at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.

Nederlands

Harmen Liemburg (NL 1966) begon zijn carrière als kartograaf. Op zoek naar een manier om zijn grafische uitdrukkingsmogelijkheden te vergroten, ging hij naar de Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Daar werd hij onderdeel van een nieuwe generatie ontwerpers, één die nauw verbonden is met de wereld van beeldende kunst, musea en onderwijs.

Liemburg is geobsedeerd door zeefdruk, en gebruikt het medium om onverwachte resultaten te bereiken. In zijn werk benadrukt hij de verhalende kant en de overwachte schoonheid van alledaagse beelden zoals logos en verpakkingen, die door middel van collagetechnieken met elkaar worden verweven.

Zijn projecten richten zich vooral op de produktie van drukwerk, dat hij gebruikt om tentoonstellingsruimten te transformeren. In dit proces wordt digitaal gereedschap aangesloten op analoge drukmethodes. Naast zijn praktijk als grafisch ontwerper en kunstenaar, beheert Liemburg momenteel ook de zeefdrukwerkplaats op de Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.
