Steven van Lummel, Netherlands (1981)

Steven van Lummel (’81) founded a skatepark (Sweatshop) and cultural hotspot (PIP) in his hometown The Hague. As an artist, van Lummel participated in numerous group shows and was an artist in residence in New York, Tokyo and Zaandam.

By founding PIP Den Haag he created a place where young creative talent are given the space to work, play and fail. With collaborative projects all over the world, PIP made a mark on the city. PIP has many artistic branches: two record labels, a book publishing agency and an online TV channel.

He loves to tell stories as long as it’s far from reality or exactly the truth. With Justin Verkijk, he records a monthly podcast with long stories about fast music: Bakkie Bakkie. They also made a podcast series for artist Phillip Akkerman in which they talk about his diary and death: De moord op Phillip Akkerman. With Sef, he recorded a series for the Kunstmuseum: Zin in kunst.

Meanwhile, the one thing van Lummel kept doing on his own is painting. His paintings register his mind as a stream of consciousness and by doing this he leaves a trace to find his way when he gets off track.
