Visual Artist Larissa Ambachtsheer (1993), graduated in 2017 at the Royal Academy of Visual Arts in The Hague.
A consciousness about changes in the world began when I was a WWF Ranger as a child, collecting money for the endangered animals and nature. I felt sorry for the poor animals that are slaughtered to feed our mouths.
Travelling is my passion and big part of my work. Then I discover new rituals and cultures which differentiate from my Western point of view. It’s ‘The paint to my canvas’.
Nowadays, as a visual artist, I am interested in topics related to human behavior; consciousness, minimalistic lifestyle and sustainability. I observe what happens in daily life and transform that into my own reality which results in still lifes, fashion series or single images. With these, I answer my main question of how we try to control our lives related to topics that have my special interest such as food.
