Color and black-white
Yasja was born and raised on a houseboat on the edge of Amsterdam, 1991. When she was thirteen years old, she moved with her family to the south of the Netherlands; to the countryside in nature. After secondary school, Yasja took Artistic Education in Belgium and slept during the week in a strict boarding school based in an old monastery. After that period, she went to the Art Academy in Maastricht and graduated in 2016 as an illustrative designer.
Besides her paintings and commissioned illustrations, she started making murals in 2017. A year later she came in contact with using spraycans as a medium. Yasja’s paintings are atmospheric: it can be mystical, colourful, dark and vibrant at the same time. First she was standing for equality and human rights in her arts. Also she wanted to break stigmas such as mental and physical health, certain human needs or other situations that people don’t like to talk about. But since her pregnancy her way of thinking and artistic creations has been evaluating. She wants to make the earth a bit more better, but with showing the beautiful and magical things of life and the power of her childlike enthusiasm. This artistic evaluation is still in proces.
She works on projects in public spaces and participates in exhibitions in various international places. In her free time she’s mostly outside in the woods: mountainbiking, climbing or hiking.
