His style is characterized by a clear signature and references to pop-art, iconography and vintage advertising. The fringes of life are a common thread throughout the work, brought to the viewer with a healthy, sometimes dark, sense of humour.

“We all think about love, aging and where our society is going. These are everyday subjects, but very meaningful and inspiring. I want to share these thoughts in my work.”

Thijs pursues to continuously explore the possibilities of working with various materials such as wood and plexiglass.
