I'm Bink Walstra, a digital artist & web-developer based in the Netherlands
Most people know me by “Bonkstraa,” a 20-year-old digital artist hailing from the Netherlands. Four years ago, I ventured into the world of digital art using Blender, immersing myself in tutorials, sharing my creations on social media, and, most importantly, developing a unique style and workflow that resonates with my artistic vision.
My artistic style embodies a captivating fusion of humanoid figures and mesmerizing procedural effects. The presence of the humanoid form serves as the foundation for all my artworks. By grounding my characters in a shape familiar to viewers, a profound sense of connection is established. Moreover, this approach enables me to explore and comprehend complex abstract concepts, such as emotions, by expressing them through my distinctive character designs. Creating art becomes an avenue for me to channel my thoughts and ideas into these humanoid figures—forming the essence of my artistic expression.
While I have ventured into various workflows and styles in the past, this approach has truly resonated with me. Evoking emotions and imbuing my characters with profound meaning lies at the heart of my creative process.
As an artist, I am constantly learning, growing, and refining my craft. It has been an exhilarating journey thus far, and I firmly believe that the best is yet to come. I invite you to join me on this artistic odyssey, and please don’t hesitate to connect with me along the way.
