Sjaak Kooji born in 1982. He is a painter and art teacher living and working in the Netherlands. Educated from Amsterdam School of the Arts, with a Bachelor in Fine Art & Education, from 2001-2005.
In Sjaak Kooji's work he uses elements of actuality, such as social, cultural or political issues that define our times. He takes images from media and everyday events – alternated with footage from his personal archive – out of their original context, which creates an exciting interaction between image and content. As a result the spectator will be confronted with these contemporary topics in an entirely different way.
