Upcoming exhibition: 'Heroes of our time'
23 June 2022, Palais des Nations, Geneva
Born in Amsterdam in 1969, Vanessa Jongebloet was trained as a house- and decorative painter. She began her working life doing faux marble- and wood finishing in the beautiful ancient canal houses of Amsterdam, while exploring new ways to paint and express her vision of the world through her own paintings. Today, she’s a realism painter with a strong social engagement. Her work combines a love for a classic style, contemporary techniques and political statement.
