Pieter Ceizer is a Dutch typographer and artist and living and working in Paris.
Ceizer works exclusively with typographical elements; words and letters. With these elements Ceizer created his own imagery; a universe of bright colors, dancing shapes, poetry and empowerment. His universe embodies a powerful form of escapism, passively resisting life's daily hassles. A getaway from the everyday struggle, his work represents an intense urge for freedom and playful empowerment. Ceizer’s choice of words, phrases and subject matter are empowering, humoristic and poetic. While studying the craft of typography, Ceizer started deconstructing letters to create colorful abstract compositions. His abstract work suggest a dream state of mind in which he blurs the line between words and figure, letters and abstract art. His paintings and wooden pieces balance color and shape, creating a playful and uplifting dynamic.
Ceizer believes in the power of written words. The written word is the best way to communicate and share thoughts or emotions. A written word on it’s own is an abstract idea, the meaning depends on the reader. Written words create an image of an idea in the mind of the reader, which can influence the readers thoughts. Written words can stimulate the brain and even change the way we act in life. The brain, Ceizer believes, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated. If you change the words you read or say, you change the way you think and change your reality.
