Jeroen Pomp

Jeroen Pomp is a Dutch artist who based his art on the horror vacui, fear of the empty space, also known in Ancient Greece as kenophobia. By using pencils, this artist doesn’ leave a single detail uncolored, filling the paper with intensely hued flora and fauna. Pomp calls himself a living encyclopedia of animals. Beside nature themes, he also creates cityscapes, seen from twisted bird’s eye perspective, depicting cities as a scrambled but still quite livable places. Jeroen Pomp suffers from both autism and epilepsy, and he lives in Rotterdam, Netherlands, collaborating closely with a Herenplaats gallery.
