Oona

As the child of an Italian mother and a Dutch father, Oona has been confronted with different cultural references and mentality from a very early age. Whilst growing up in the Netherlands Oona graduated from the Artemis academy in 2006 to initially become a fashion designer. Yet once he discovered that his collections mostly contained of illustrated moodboards he changed his perspective to become a successful illustrator. Today he combines the vibrant shades and organic lines from possibly his Italian background with the (may we say, Dutch) simplicity of working with pen and water colour. OONA is a pseudonym for Django Steenbakker (1984)
