About the artist
Annejole Jacobs-de Jongh (Jole), born in Breda (The Netherlands) makes modern mixed-media portraits since 2003, on commission for private individuals and companies or as free work.
Her work consists of 'portraits with a story'. She makes designs on the basis of all kinds of digital images, photos and texts and then paints the portraits on backgrounds printed on canvas. The backgrounds of the paintings are often composed of various layers of digital images, texts and scanned originals from art, history, music, literature or contemporary times.
In haar werk laat ze zich vaak inspireren door vrouwen. Daarnaast maakte ze een serie liefdesparen met de achtergronden van bekende liefdesschilderijen, een serie 'Made in Holland' met de bekendste Nederlanders, merken, items en schilderijen, 'Van Gogh' en 'De Rotterdammers', twee schilderijen waar alle bekende Rotterdamse gebouwen, mensen, evenementen, verklaringen en merken in verwerkt zijn. Haar nieuwste serie "Take your time" bestaat uit compilaties van afbeeldingen, mensen, teksten, foto's en items uit verschillende tijdperken.
Jole exhibits and sells her work directly and through art brokers and galleries. In 2009 she won the first prize in a national competition with the painting by Maxima and exhibited in the CODA-Museum. In 2015 she was selected as one of the contemporary Dutch pop art artists for the exhibition 'Ontpopt' in the Museum van Zandvoort and in 2016 her painting of 'Van Gogh' was selected for the exhibition '125 variations on Van Gogh' in the museum of Breda.
In 2019 Annejole took part in the TV program 'Sterren op het doek' in which she made the winning portrait of Matthijs van Nieuwkerk.
Jole lives and works in Rotterdam.
