Wouter van Reek

Wouter van Reek was born in 1960 in the Netherlands. He studied audiovisual design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. From 1990 to 2006 he made several animated TV series with freehand computer animation. As you can see in the Coppernickel (Keepvogel in Dutch, one of his best known characters) series, he writes the text, animates and does the voice-over himself. Since 1994 he creates one short animation film each year for the Dutch version of “Sesame Street”. From 2005 Coppernickel has also become a series for picture books. They have now been translated into six languages.

He also illustrates for Dutch newspapers and in 2009 made a live-animation performance in collaboration with the Calefax Reed Quintet. In 2010 he published “Keepvogel en Kijkvogel in het spoor van Mondriaan” (English edition: “Coppernickel Goes Mondrian”) which won the Golden Apple at the 2011 Biennial of Illustration Bratislava, Slovakia.
