Sebastian Brajkovic was born in Amsterdam in 1975 to a Dutch-Indonesian mother and a Croatian-Italian father, Brajkovic studied cabinet-making before enrolling at Design Academy Eindhoven. He started his Lathe Series as a graduation project for the Eindhoven Academy and has since continued working on the series. I know of 10 thus far, two of them I’ve featured already here. I like to bring them together in one post to show the development of the series.

He shares with his audience an understanding and respect for what has passed, but he does not merely reproduce traditional styles in a bid to replicate history. Rather, Brajkovic transforms and mutates archetypal shapes into new forms, using contemporary technologies. These hybrids exist entirely in their own present, but are built on our recognition of the past within them.

He’s represented by London based Carpenter's Workshop Gallery
