Our
Expert's
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 Hague, 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 allows for photorealistic depictions.

Rather than impose meaning to his work, Jaco Putker invites the viewers to associate freely and give his etchings personal significance through individual perceptions and filters.

The titles of the etchings are descriptive and give no handle as to the meaning of the works. The artist considers his works to be illustrations to fables which don't exist but hopefully take shape in the beholders' minds.

Jaco Putker was awarded the Dutch national Business Art Service competition for Graphic Arts in 2010. He won the Awagami Paper Factory Prize (at the Awagami International Miniature Print Exhibition) twice; in 2015, and again in 2017. In 2017 he also won the ON PAPER International Printmaking Award 2017.

His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, as well as in Japan, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Australia, Canada and the USA.
