“color can also be fun.”

Jonas Vanderbeke is on a continuous journey of experimentation within the realm of painting. Drawing inspiration from the juxtaposition of digital precision as part of the process, and human imperfection, Jonas's work unfolds as a dynamic interplay between digital collages and canvas. Jonas’s research is characterized by a sharp aestheticism that culminates in a celebration of the artificial, of a contrastful coherence, of painting that holds a mirror to itself.

His paintings  emerge as a celebration of colour and form. Each piece is a testament to his commitment to capturing the essence of the narratives that inspire him. His paintings unleash a game, one that obscures and hides at the same time, makes old symbols unfamiliar or anew. Whether this is a 19th century novel by French writer Joris-karl Huysmans, or a pop song by Lana Del Rey. They lose their usual meaning and are disconnected. They no longer reference in the way they did before.
