Robert-Jonathan Koeyers is a multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker. He studied animation at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, where he graduated with an experimental film titled 'Here: A Visual Poem'. Throughout the years, he has been using film, photography, animation, and music to help turn his stories into deeply personal projects that aim to unpack how his Blackness has shaped and moulded him into the person he is—and aim to explore how the lived experiences of Black people can be told in an authentic and vulnerable way.
