Master of Arts, Aliki van der Kruijs is an Amsterdam based artist/designer graduated in 2012 from the Sandberg Instituut. During her master she juxtaposed her bachelors graphic and fashion design into a body of work that explores the relationship between colour, culture and nature with a specialisation in textile. She graduated with the project Made by Rain: a collection of weather data: visual recordings of a drizzle day or even monsoon, imprinted in textile.
“The wonderful thing about rain is that it outlines the contour of the immediate landscape around your. You hear the space. — Quote from a blind man.”
ZigZagZurich collaborates with artists and designers, both established and new, on unique collections transformed into textiles under the direction of creative director Michele Rondelli and the founders of ZigZagZurich.
