Esther de Groot presents a series of handmade lycra characters, each with unique individual features. Stripped of any additions to emphasize their nudity and imperfection. What’s left is the material and it’s application. Posture as well as a blank expression contribute to the over all feel of discomfort and desolation of each individual character.
Esther de Groot was born in Enschede, the Netherlands in 1981. She graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven (2007-2009). After graduating she started her own Studio at the Kanaalstraat in Eindhoven. Besides working for different clients as Bas Kosters Studio en TU/e she also works on projects of her own in the field of Graphic Design and Character Design/Storytelling.
