Gilleam Trapenberg graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague in 2017. Born and raised in Curacao his fascinations with themes such as status, representation and image culture have long played an integral part in his work as these make up the social landscape in Curacao. In the broadest sense his visual language is a combination of utilising the documentary aesthetic while commenting on visual codes and cliches within the current image culture. He has collaborated with Patta, Converse, Wallpaper, Vogue Homme and COS among others.
