Born in Eindhoven the Netherlands in 1985 as the child of two ceramists, Jasper Kuipers was brought up with an overabundance of materials to play with. From an early age he became fascinated by clay and drawing; fascinations that persist to the present day. After graduating from the animation department at the School of Fine Art and Design (AKV) St. Joost in Breda, Kuipers started his practice as a freelance director/animator. From his studio space in Breda he has worked on a diverse range of commissioned projects, spanning from educational films and music videos to installations and theatre video projections. Besides the commissioned work, he has continued to work on independent films in various traditional techniques.
