Guido de Boer


Guido de Boer teaches Letters at the Graphic Design department of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK).

Guido (1988) is an independent visual artist with a background as a graphic designer. His work consists of images you can read and texts you can experience visually. His work is often large, monumental and handmade, making it expressive and at the same time graphic. Works by Guido have been shown at, among others, the Kröller-Müller Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, the HEM and the GEM/Kunstmuseum.

Complementing his artistic practice, Guido has been a teacher in the field of Letters and Typography at several art academies in the Netherlands since graduating in 2011, at the Nanjing University of the Arts, ELISAVA Barcelona, and, since 2016, has enjoyed teaching at the Graphic Design Department at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.

With his collective High on Type, he organised Letter and Calligraphy festivals from 2016 to 2019 . With the team, he travels around giving exhibitions, (writing) performances and workshops that test the boundaries of what writing and letters are.
