Weijers translates his creativity and visions into three different creative disciplines, photography, painting and music.
As a painter, through the years he continiously developed by means of materials used, technic and concept. As a result of his background in graphic design and communication, his free work had been strongly influenced hereby in a graphical sense. Through the past years he managed to disconnect himself psychologically from this background. Weijers mainly paints on wooden panels and his work could be described as multi-layered mix media (collage, acrylic, oil pastel, graphite and mounted objects).. His high levels of productivity continiously generate a further developing flow of paintings.
The new series of paintings 'artifacts', by this Dutch (Rotterdam) painter, are based on a characteristic abstract language of signs and shapes. Within his paintings he reveals a deeper meaning and reflects his view on contemporary issues. By reaching a state of liberation from existing patterns, the interplay of lines is dominated by the metamorphosis which conceals the evaluation of his work from the source. The spectator's fantasy is stimulated by the intuitive and specific combination of colour, material and shape, thus seducing the spectator towards an alternative view on this world. Weijers' personal quest to find the balance between tranquillity and tension initiates his painting process in general. His work is the ultimate medium to communicate with himself and with others. His paintings are on exhibit in several galleries in the Netherlands and Germany and will go on show during 2007 in Belgium, France
As a photographer he targets in on “catching” an objective, but also an alternative vision. Photographic projects like 'Throw away your TV!', 'It's a stars & stripes circus out there', 'Get Connected with Phonarchy', 'Spray-com 2006', 'LA drive-by shooting', 'Target rush-hour' and 'Fixx the game', reveal
A deeper meaning by concept and reflect his vision on social and political issues and discussions from this time. His work is shown in galleries in the Netherland, Germany and the United States.
His photographic vision on New York is at this moment used for the development of several publications like “Manhattan Transfer” and the series of six books “Alter Vision”.
As a musician Weijers releases two CD projects a year using the name “Global Frequency”.
He writes and arranges the music and produces these musical projects. The recordings of these projects are realised in corporation with an international group of musical friends. So far, his musical activities resulted into the release of nine CD’s during the past few years.
