Onno lives and works in Rotterdam. He graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy in 2000. Impermanence is a noticeable characteristic of his work. Like in fairy tales he incorporates hidden messages in a touching shell. These stories refer to real or virtual events he encounters in magazines or on TV. Onno works mainly with ceramics. He uses a lot of found objects and toys which he converts to another material. Poiesz collects all kinds of toys and finds these at thrift stores, in the garbage or online.
