Dennis de Groot is an artist and illustrator based in Amsterdam. His work characterizes itself by reducing subjects to fundamental forms and primary colors. Strongly influenced by contemporary pop culture, he aims to explore the line between detail and simplicity. In 2011 he published his first book, "Bare Essentials", with Lebowski Publishers, and later collaborated with Lacoste on a limited edition children's collection. He was featured in Converse's "Made By You" campaign and has been published in Co.Design, Fubiz, Volkskrant, Coolhunting, Parool, DesignEnvy, Code Magazine and more.
