about eric

Eric Schrijver was born in Amsterdam in 1984.

He now lives in Brussels, and works for the Belgian IT company ACSONE, designing and developing interfaces for clients in the public and private sector.

Eric directs a group blog called I like tight pants and mathematics, that aims to motivate designers and artists to get more involved in the world of computer programmers.

Next to that, beneficiary of a grant from the Cultural Industries Fund NL, Eric is working on his first book: “Legal Advice for Artists”, an irreverent guide to copyright.

From 2011 to 2017 he was a core member of the graphic design collective Open Source Publishing. Eric has taught workshops at art schools around the world. He has been a teacher at the Masters Graphic Design at the École de Recherche Graphique (ERG), and is currently a faculty member at KABK (The Hague), teaching coding to fourth your Graphic Design students.

Eric has a background in performance, creating pieces that deal with the thinking body and the flight to abstraction. His first theatre production is called You don’t wanna be alive when you’re 25. Eric has performed in contemporary theatre productions (a.o. for Bruno Listopad).

Now, Eric extends this performative attitude to his projects in new and digital media, making the internet into a performative space.
