The aim of the A2-format Big Mother series is to allow artists and illustrators plenty of room to create expansive, detailed work.

The work of Dutch illustrator Raymond Lemstra – the subject of Big Mother 4 – fits this format perfectly.

Lemstra’s work focuses on human faces and forms – turning them intro tribal or abstract reproductions. His work demonstrates skill, detail and a rather unsettling imagination.

Lemstra says, ‘I try to bring back the sense of wonder we remember from being a child, bridging the young and mature, by creating a contained fantasy world populated by my characters.’
