Viktor Hachmang is a Dutch designer, illustrator and experimental comics artist. Although trained as a graphic designer at the Royal Academy in The Hague, Hachmang gradually grew into illustration and visual storytelling. His primary sources of inspiration are Ukiyo-e and the European Ligne Claire tradition of comic strips.
Alongside his own autonomous graphic work, Hachmang also works with a wide variety of international clients, ranging from editorial heavyweights (The New York Times, Bloomberg Businessweek, MIT Technology Review and Wired) to luxury brands such as Kenzo Paris, Diesel and Lacoste. Recently, Hachmang has specialized in making experimental comic books and graphic novels, seeking to blur the boundaries between autonomous art and the comic strip. In 2016, he made his debut with the short story Book of Void (published by Landfill Editions, UK) and 2018 saw the publication of a large graphic novel, Blokken. Hachmang’s work is exhibited regularly, both nationally and internationally, and can be found in the collection of the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
