Hello Rawana

Nijstad was an Artist In Residence at Kunst in Kolderveen (2009) and he has done the design for the inside of two Amsterdam metro sets in 2010. Most of his ideas come from events he has seen or experienced which are rearranged or exaggerated in a distorted, fairy-tale like fashion.

Series and books by Bart Nijstad in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:


Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
