The work of Hans Schuttenbeld is following the calligraphic principle: Dividing black and white by directing the movement of a tool.
With his progressive calligraphy the challenge is to enrich the age-old great library of scripts. After years of practicing this craft the interest in abstracting calligraphy took off. While holding on to the principles, the letter is left behind and doors are opened towards an inviting world of optical illusionary patterns and surrealistic atmospheres.
Besides his own practice Hans is part of the High on Type collective in where they share skills and enthusiasm in order to teach, publish, enrich, organise and play.
