Jelle van Meerendonk (1987)
In 2016 I graduated from AKV St.Joost Breda with Master of Animation. During my studies I created films that where screened in many international festivals. Around the time of making my second short film, after Erasmus semester at KASK in Ghent, I discovered the unlimited possibilities of non-realistic art. My growing interest in live drawings, human behaviour and surrounding allowed me to create untold stories on a single page.
My interest is a mixture of live drawing, expressiveness and abstractionism. In my paintings I translate how I see things. They capture my feelings at the moment of time. It’s an intuitive process, where in return I need to give a piece of myself away.
Moving between Netherlands and Belgium, I try to find new sources of inspiration and disseminate my art internationally.
