Greetings! I’m Falco Verholen (1984), an artist, designer and comic creator based near Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I specialize in editorial illustration, poster design and portraiture. My thematic focus is on surrealism, fantasy and horror imagery.
I’ve had a weak spot for the surreal, unearthly and macabre from an early age. At the same time, I’m drawn to a sense of calm and tenderness, and creating a meaningful human connection. I try to unite these two elements in most of the personal work I create. Often, I work in graphite and digital colors, or acrylics. Some of the fuel behind my work is music, which I couldn’t create without, the Dutch natural landscape, and plenty of comedy to help me make some sense of the world we live in.
