Our Heroe(s)

Category: Mural
Location: Heerlen, Netherlands

A portrait of an existing nurse with a mouth mask. It was painted in the beginning of the pandemic. You cannot see if she is putting the mask on or off. Her eye is letting go a tear. Nobody knows if it is a tear of relief or hopelessness. She is a model for all the people who works with other contacts.
Yasja was born and raised on a houseboat in Amsterdam, 1991. When she was thirteen years old, she moved with her family to the south of the Netherlands; to the countryside in nature. After secondary school, Yasja took Artistic Education in Belgium and slept during the week in a strict boarding school, based in an old monastery. After that period, she went to the Art Academy in Maastricht (NL) and graduated in 2016 as an illustrative designer. Since 2018 she is working with spray cans as media. Her free work are colourful and dark at the same time. Mostly her artwork contains a critical message. In her work she is standing on the edge of feminism, anti-discrimination and erotism. Sometimes with a little dark humour in it. Before the pandemic broke out, she was painting murals all around Europe and traveling around in her old Peugeuot; fully tagged and bombed by many international graffiti writers. In her free time she’s mostly outside in the woods: mountainbiking, climbing or hiking.
