Frank Taal Galerie

As an artist Bram Braam (NL, 1980) is interested in the way we design of our daily environment. In addition to producing photographs, collages and assemblages, Braam mainly focuses on sculptural work of subtle or impressive size. Many influences can be traced: the American minimalism of Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt, the utopian vision of an architect like Le Corbusier, but also the modernism of Bauhaus and De Stijl. The planned clarity of the Dutch landscape and the raw, urban chaos of Braam's hometown of Berlin come together in his work.
