Historic buildings often attract many visitors, also animal-like. These silent intruders won’t show themselves too easily. They will hide in, upon, underneath and behind all places and above all keep an eye on each other. Who is entitled to which spot? They are often intruders with finely tuned senses so they can keep each other on a proper distance. They show each other respect and are certainly not the dark creatures, as people will make you believe! What is regarded as black, like a shadow, may as well be white.

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.
