"If the dream is a translation of waking life,
waking life is also a translation of the dream."

René Magritte

"I believe throughout our busy daily life, we need art that will take us out of that routine. Works of art that will encourage us to dream, to think and to see the world differently."

I am Cheerted Keo, born in a refugee camp on the Cambodian border. I grew up in the Netherlands and have been living here all my life. Drawing has always been something like home to me. Still to this day I remember very cleary the first time someone admired my drawings skills. 

It was back at primairy school the 2nd year. I was about 6 years old. Our teacher had drawn a duck on the blackboard and I copied that. She’d seen it and gave me compliments on it. This gave me confidence and since then drawing has always been the leading thread throughout my life.

I started my illustration major in 2007 at the art academy in the Netherlands called St. Joost. I managed to graduated in 2012. 

Nowadays I’m working on my freelance illustration business from Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

I will translate your stories and ideas into authentic colorful visuals.
