Pieter Ceizer is a Dutch typographical artist and designer living and working
in between Paris and Amsterdam.
All Ceizer’s work is typographical or type based, his work mostly consists of
clean retro-style script designs and hand lettering as well as colorful abstract
compositions with type based shapes.
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.
Next to his independent art and clothingbrand, Ceizer worked in collaboration
with several brands like Coca Cola, Ralph Lauren, Uniqlo, Nike, Heineken,
Adobe and colette.
