Tim Schaap is a Dutch artist, photographer, brand-owner and founder, model and full-time student
at Royal Academy of the Arts in the Hague. 

Tim’s creative career started young. At 12 years old Tim was dedicating serious time to endeavours in illustration,
which led to his first solo exhibition at just 16 years old. 

Throughout high school Tim developed a specialization in fine-liner illustrations,
which brought him insight into new methods of design, materials and techniques.

In 2016 Tim founded Defekt Company and designed his own streetwear,
adding a new twist to his creative pursuits. 

Having worked as a model on sets for brands such as Hermès, Fendi and Zegna
provided Tim with first hand experience when it comes to working within creative productions. 

Tim always kept himself busy on the side throughout analog photography,
which became a more serious occupation throughout the years.
