Jaap Scheeren

Past artists presented at Unseen

Jaap Scheeren (1979, Nijmegen, The Netherlands) graduated in 2003 from the Academy St. Joost in Breda, the Netherlands and has since overwhelmed art lovers with his natural talent. His seemingly clumsy and humoristic attitude enhances the authentic character of his photographs, yet never undermines the sincerity of his intentions. Even when his work may seem imaginary and surreal, Scheeren tries to stay on the narrow path of plausibility. In 2010, he won the 'Bouw in Beeld' Award. In 2013, he was nominated for the Prix de Rome. His photographs were previously exhibited at Foam, at the Museum of the City of New York, at the Nederlands Fotomuseum, the Prague Biennale of Photo and many other venues.
