Perspective

Fear, amusement, joy, bewilderment or dread? It is entirely up to the individual's mood, on how Jacob Putker's work is perceived. He combines digital and traditional techniques to produce images which are playful and sinister, nostalgic and magical.

His preferred medium is photopolymer, or solar plate, etching. This technique is a non-toxic way of etching which allows for photorealistic depictions, rather than an imposed meaning to his work.

This artist knows very well how to trigger your feelings, tangle your mind and unearth all the strangers lingering in your long forgotten dreams.

About

Jaco Putker is a contemporary artist and printmaker from The Hague, The Netherlands. He combines digital and traditional techniques to produce images which are both playful and sinister, nostalgic and magical.

His preferred medium is photopolymer, or solar plate, etching. This technique is a non-toxic way of etching which allow for photorealistic depictions.

Jaco draws inspiration from everyday life and the workings of the subconscious mind to create intricate monochromatic prints that blur the lines between reality and imagination. They are whimsical snapshots of existence that encapsulate the profound, the humorous, and the enigmatic.

Through his work Jaco invites viewers to embark on a journey of introspection, exploring themes of identity, memory, and the subconscious. He aims to provoke thought and spark curiosity about the hidden corners of the mind.

Putker's art has gained international recognition and has been exhibited worldwide in galleries and at art fairs.
