Call for Applications: 2022/2023 Jan Van Eyck Academie

deadline: Wednesday, December 1, 2021

Jan van Eyck’s annual Call for Applications is now open!

Artists, writers, curators, architects, and designers ranging from graphic and fashion to food and social design, are welcome to apply for an 11-month residency starting in November 2022.

The Jan van Eyck Academie is committed to exploring the agency, roles, and civic significance of art, design and other creative practices in relation to climate change, environmental breakdown, and their manifold effects. This institutional focus opens up a wide discourse and creates a framework that embraces a diversity of practices and allows for a multitude of voices. 

As a post-academic institute, the Jan van Eyck Academie supports this myriad of artistic endeavours by offering participants the time, space and expertise to further develop, materialise and disseminate their artistic research in a critical and reciprocal relationship with each other and the world.

The academy provides each selected participant with a private studio; guidance of their advisers; access to their library and labs – Photography & Audiovisual, Material Matters, Food, Printing & Publishing, and Future Materials; and expertise of departments for Nature Research, Art & Society and Research & Education. Next to their individual projects, participants are encouraged to collaboratively develop an In-Lab project and to contribute to the Jan van Eyck public programme.

You can find all information about the application and selection procedure as well as the link for the application form here

Application deadline: 1 December 23:59 CEST

My art spans many disciplines and areas. Being a self taught, learning and experimenting has become an ingrained part of my practice and as such there is a diverse range of subject matter and on some occasions style.  Majority of my works are oil paintings, created in series, in a representational style,. Some of note are “Buddhas on Handmade Paper”, “Bicycles in Snow” “#Savetheelephants”. The common thread in my diverse art is the feeling of serenity and tranquility, with the ultimate objective in every painting to capture the harmonious existence of different elements in nature, that evidences life is strong, calm and beautiful.
