Harry Arling from the Netherlands was born in 1965 in  Emmerschans.  Music and building kit models were his passions.  He started of as a drummer(jazz). The Kosmotroniks came years later.  With his brother he also made children theater performances.  Harry still plays the drums but his art, building Kosmotroniks, is the most important work.  


What is remarkable about your artwork? 

My Kosmotroniks are one of a kind objects. My art work is totally new and unique. Using plastic waste materials and giving it a new look/purpose. 

The details on a Kosmotronik are amazing. You will discover new things every time you look at it. 


How do you deal with artist's block?

I never have a artist block. Its just sitting down and start playing with all kinds of plastic parts. Then the magic happens! 


Can you tell us what you have going on right now?

Im now busy making a big Kosmotronik called IceFloeJumper.  I hope I get it ready for this art fair. 


Can you tell us what your 'Before I Die' is?

Making a Kosmotronik movie/serie. Or build a Kosmotronik full size.


I know my artwork is finished when…?

Mostly when I put a flag on it!

Kris kuksi, Stanley Kubrick, William Shatner, Tony Williams, and many more.
