Surrounded by Giants was founded in 2012 by the talented illustrator Bjorn Bossu. His lowbrow art gives you a glimpse of how he handles reality: with an amazing twist. Colours, skeletons, bearded men, birds and sharp lines, mixed and matched to create a parallel universe where anything is possible.
He has been drawing for as long as he can remember, it’s an essential part of his existence, it’s true passion. In the course of his art education, he developed a great love for illustrators such as Mike Mignola, Jeremy Fish, Loisel, Tardi, Dalek, Jeff Smith, …
Bjorn became a tattoo artist in 2015, learning the essential skills from Dagmar and bringing so much talent and friendship into our shop. The transformation of his work from paper to skin created a whole new level of possibilities, the results are stunning.
For Bjorn, anything can be his canvas: from paper to skin, walls, skatedecks, books, textile and so much more.
His home studio is always filled with music, creating an atmosphere that inspires him to work his magic.
Bjorn also is a loving and devoted dad. His children inspire him through their own drawings, their play, their stories, their toys, through the life and love that they bring into the house.
