Mad Skills Monday 052: Taudalpoi

Welcome to Mad Skills Monday, where we showcase top work from young creatives to bring some inspiration to beat the post-weekend blues. Today we delve into the endless experiments of fine artist Taudalpoi.

Power tool: Adobe Photoshop! Without it my portfolio would be 90% smaller.
Power song: Put on some “Here I go again” and I’m good to go.
Power snack: The amazing Turkish pastry börek. I’ll eat it any time.

Over the past year we’ve been blown away by artists who constantly create and document new projects. One such creative is Taudalpoi, a.k.a. Jonas Heen, whose portfolio currently boasts almost 500 separate images and products – and he’s only nineteen years old. A self-taught artist influenced by philosophical ideas, his work spans several mediums but focuses on photo manipulations and digital collages, combining retro images with contemporary textures and glitches.
