In the jungle of the transferring of immovable affairs, the establishing of mortgages, the making up of testaments, societies contracts and ante nuptial contract, but also the putting up or transfer of an enterprise, offer these gentlemen and their co-workers outcome. They watch over the rule moderation of the deeds that they make up and give this proof power and executive power. The birds and the fish stand metaphor for the many men that have been advised in this jungle of paper. As masters of the paper jungle, they throw the light on the affair, they inform and give council, but balance also between good and badly, for is the poison of the snake sometimes deadly? Human imperfection is also to them not strange and the six and four fingers at everyone’s hand keep the deeds and see to it that these never go lost.

Toyism paintings are nothing if not bizarre but recognizable imageries drawn from reality, the surreal, and fantasy. The intense play of lines, shapes, dots and colors is intended to help open the viewer’s mind. And to critical thinking about the human condition in the present day world. Toyism is figurative, contemporary and based on a story. These stories can cover all kinds of subjects, from happy to critical or serious subjects. Toyism paintings are very labour intensive. Every painting consist of several layers of paint. Making the colours bright and vibrant and able to withstand the test of time.
Paintings are created by a mixed group of professional artists from around the world with diverse cultural backgrounds and working in various disciplines. Yet all artists have a like-minded view of how to experience this art and inspire each other. No matter their own backgrounds or beliefs, everyone can express themselves in this style without losing their own value or feeling. Therefore every toyist can influence and enrich the style. Hence toyists tell their own story and depict it.
