Biography

Born in 1951 in Amsterdam – The Netherlands and now residing in Chlorakas – Cyprus, Joep has been painting for 12 years and is entirely self-taught. With his inexorable desire to create his images, he has developed a unique style which is instantly recognisable as the artist’s signature.

The paintings are mainly abstract and generally portray images set in a group with particular emphasis given to their surroundings

The paintings summon the observers to use their powers of imagination to explore and interpret the meaning behind each individual canvas.

Oils and acrylic resin are used on a linen canvas thus creating dynamic and intense colours.
The simplicity of the abstract designs identifies Joep’s own particularly unique style which he has exhibited in many locations in his native Holland and is well known within the art circuit in The Netherlands

There is a continuing exhibition of paintings by Joep in Restaurant Palia Poli in Paphos (near the old town hall). Also you can see his work in the Gallery in Tala and at his home in Chlorakas, where he will create special commissions.

Joep also is the artist behind a unique project in Cyprus. You will find his paintings on the bottles of “The Art Collection” wines. Wines that have been bottled by Tsangarides Winery.

He is always looking for new venues to exhibit his work, so if you feel your establishment would benefit from his works, he will be more than happy to talk to you.
