“Red Riding Hood”
Yohannez is a painter from the Betuwe region (NL). In his studio in Beusichem he paints according to classical realistic oil painting technique. His compositions however far from traditional: In his esoteric hand portraits and also in his other work he depicts paradoxical combinations, mix-ups and metaphors. Sometimes there is a deeper message. Sometimes the message is subordinate to the form. From 2012 Yohannez has been painting after a model. This has resulted in many works. Before that he has painted several other series including the portrait series Victus Manus where the accent lies entirely on "hands".
