Colorful, lively and atmospheric.
Yasja was born and raised on a houseboat on the edge of Amsterdam, 1991.
When she was 13, 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 (NL) and graduated in 2016 as an illustrative designer.
In 2018 she came in contact with James Jetlag (alias Fish), Nash and Arian Winterink in Heerlen (NL). They introduced her to using spray cans as a medium.
Yasja ’s paintings are dark and lively at the same time. Mostly her art exists of portraits of courageous and inspiring people. Her free work is based on her own emotions and personal experiences.
Nowadays she is painting murals all around Europe and traveling around in her old Peugeuot; fully tagged and bombed by many international and national graffiti writers. In her free time she’s mostly outside in the woods: mountainbiking, climbing or hiking.
