Jelle de Graaf creates sculptures from old plastic materials and metals. He often moulds and shapes them as machines into the physical appearance as animals or fantasy creatures, like giant ponies, tanks, robots and laser eyed skulls. He aims for them to be either violent yet harmless, he contradicts between power and no power, or creates a cuddly animal while being a predator. He also enjoys to involve the viewer into the installation themselves.

Jelle de Graaf is also working with the interior and exterior design of festivals and events.
