Mind Mirage by Rik Versteeg


By (author): Rik Versteeg

Title: Mind Mirage

Subtitle: A Serenade to Hallucination


Versteeg, a queer visual artist, fearlessly explores the realm of self-expression, using his artistic prowess to celebrate and shed light on queer identity. Through a diverse range of mediums and an unapologetic approach, Versteeg weaves together thought-provoking narratives that challenge societal norms and creates space for dialogue and understanding.

Embracing a multitude of mediums, Versteeg pushes the boundaries of conventional artistic forms, transforming his work into an all-around practice.

At the core of Versteeg’s artistic vision is the celebration of queer identity. His works often feature diverse representations of queer individuals, breaking stereotypes and challenging societal constructs. Versteeg uses his platform to advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights, foster inclusivity and empower others to embrace their true selves.

The book “Mind Mirage” is a serenade to Versteeg’s hallucinations; it illuminates and sheds light on a lingering darkness. A love letter to the beautiful and wicked thoughts passing through his mind.

“The book is an invitation, a call to embrace the beauty of queerness in all its forms. You will find autonomous work including background information, film stills, queer collaborations, and backstage images. This book is not just a portfolio, but a look peek inside my brain,” explains Versteeg.

The book is a collaboration between SNAP Collective & Voordekunst - a platform based in The Netherlands for crowdfunding artistic projects in the creative sector.
