About

There is no place for timid, mundane, or formulaic in his design vocabulary, instead Gert’s brilliantly coloured world celebrates the daring and the exceptional. His magical roomscapes ignite our imaginations, fuel our dreams, and enhance our realities.

– Hamish Bowles, European editor-at-large of Vogue
