Jeroen Heeman, also known as Jeroen Erosie, is a Dutch visual artist from Eindhoven (NL), born in 1976. He is best known for his cycle tags, illustrative style and perfect circle. His style addresses different disciplines such as graffiti, conceptual art, illustration and typography, among others. He connects these seemingly segregated areas in a natural, personal process, reflecting his thoughts, doubts and experiences while constantly evolving his visual output. Erosie graduated with honours from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. He started doing graffiti in 1993 and later started as a professional illustrator. These two worlds naturally led him to join texts and images in his work and expand the territory of different visual and conceptual fields. Wall paintings, typography, drawing, painting, a non ending-game with one motto: artistic freedom. His works are often politically and socially motivated, and range from the relatively minimal to the elaborate and grandiose. Erosie is also the aritistic director of 3024, a record label founded with his friend and musician Martyn.
On the side wall of the home of the owner of a nearby bicycle shop, Jeroen Erosie painted bicycles of children from this neighborhood. By letting the neighborhood participate in the project, the artist created involvement and acceptance among local residents.
