“I think Pjipje is who I am and how I feel. Whatever I paint, it comes from the heart. I am what I paint.”

about the artist
Meet Loes van Delft

Loes van Delft

Her paintings always have a female touch to them and she is certainly not afraid to use some pink! She uses playful outlines, the recurring small and large eye and the thick eyebrows make her work unmistakable.

She was crowned with the Best Global Artist Award at the Amsterdam International Art Fair in 2012. From that moment on Loes van Delft is taking the art world by storm. Her work is extremely popular, recently Justin Bieber and his dad were spotted in customized Loes van Delft biker jackets. Her work is shown in various exhibitions around the world; from Amsterdam to Tokyo and Miami to London. Her paintings combine a certain innocence with a quirky cartoon feel. They always have a female touch to them and she is certainly not afraid to use some pink! 

She uses playful outlines, the recurring small and large eye and the thick eyebrows make her work unmistakable.

Pjipje
The cartoon that appears is all of her paintings is called Pjipje. The character is based on the stuffed toy of her little nephew. She says the following about Pjipje: “Pjipje originated in a very natural way. I never thought that i would have to create a cartoon character to become an artist, it just happened. I think Pjipje is who I am and how I feel. Whatever I paint, it comes from the heart. I am what I paint. Actually, Pjipje is never the same animal, but the recognizable eyes and eyebrows always stay unchanged. I think it is important that you have a recognizable style, so when you see one of my paintings I want people to think: that’s a Loes van Delft painting!"
