art of Jakke

“….the greatest art of all arts is living life….! “ Berthold Brecht


Jakke, west flemish for Jan, learned to observe and sketch from the natural world during the first years of his study biology. After his graduation he spent several years searching the structures in our biological existence at the Free University of Amsterdam.


“In the scenes, I am always searching for a sense of place and environment, painting the light, natural beauty, but also isolation, decay and pollution, basically the poverty which is apparent on the fringes of modern Curacao” Jakke explains.
