Artist SIT has been part of the Amsterdam creative scene for many years. Doing action painting, graphic design, advertising and more until he got fed up. He went back to square one to find his true essence. Back to head and handcraft.
Sit has created several series since:
Unwired is the documented process of his everyday struggle to get unwired. It showed the progress from feeling lost to finding purity. All visualized in black and white.
In his exhibition Sitaki SIT highlights the painful antithesis between Mother Nature and today’s implacable materialistic society, that mankind has created for itself.
DRKPNK is a mix of beauty, light-heartedness, surrealism, sex, colour, humour, movements and contemporary dynamics.
In the eastern parts of the world 9 is a lucky number. To SIT it means new found luck. It was a strange encounter with a goldfish in Hong Kong that made him feel lucky again. Lost in the dark realms of this city his heart bleeding from a broken relationship and his vision blurred by cheap Chinese whisky SIT stumbled across a goldfish with enormous eyes in a shop window. Hypnotized by this eerie image he saw this goldfish transform into a 9 and heard a deep voice whispering ‘follow number 9 and luck will come your way again’. In the wake of this story his wallet was gone of course but knew he had struck gold. A better tomorrow was on its way.
Those familiar with SIT know this story could only happen to a joyful and free spirit like him. He masterminded 9 exclusive works paying hommage to his new lucky charm, the goldfish. Where black has turned into gold and life has a better tomorrow. Jinyu to all of you.
