Olaf Mooij lives and works in Rotterdam. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rotterdam in 1983. At the base of Olaf’s work lies his ability to pretend/suggest life in dead matter. Examples of these are his car sculptures in the public space, which gained him a considerable reputation. Almost everyone is familiar with his Braincar: a car whose top has been transformed into a brainpan. During the day, the car drives through a neighborhood, city or street, and in the evening it dreams of his day through video projections on his matt white brain surface.
