Alain Verster (b. 1984) makes collages that have a very distinct nostalgic feel to them. By using old photographs combined with crêpe paper tape, pencil, acrylic paint and oil paint, he creates sober and humorous illustrations, containing lots of little details. His debut 'The Pigeon That Couldn’t Dive' has been translated into five languages. ‘I Can See You, Can You See Me?’ won the Boekenpauw Reader’s Prize.
