Carli Hermès (23 April 1963, Schijndel), a photographer and director whose characteristic bold forms and vivid colors, give shape to much of our innermost desires. Hermès suspends our belief between fantasy and fruition, a juxtaposition reflecting our wants and needs as people. Renowned for his uncompromising style as both a commercial and autonomous artist, we recognize Hermès’ world for its sensual and often erotic liberation.
These traits can be seen in Hermès notable campaigns for brands such as G-Star Raw, Mexx and Suitsupply and in Hermès’ autonomous work which has been collected and exhibited in several museums and galleries including the Groninger Museum, the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, the CODA Museum in Apeldoorn, the Arnhem Museum and Rademakers Gallery. Currently he has published eight works including Both Sides, Glitz and the Elements.
