illustrator Gijs Kast, Born30-12-1983, Amsterdam
Gijs' masterpiece is the book BOHNHASE.
This book is based on his life in a so-called “problem area”. According to the Dutch media, is was kind of a horribel getto. Gijs on the other hand saw the affluence of the neighbourhood.
His mission was to illustrate the charm of the area. Some research among his neighbours, showed him the undercover labour market up there. All those peeps seemed to have some kind of business. Mr. Harry was plumbing, Miss. Annie knitting.. That gathered all their – functional – data and made an undercover version of Yellow Pages.
