Jacoba Niepoort (DK)

JACOBA (b. 1987) is a Copenhagen-based muralist who has been painting in the public space since 2009. Scale is a personal obsession, and the streets are often her playground, because they are where everyday people move. JACOBA’s work is grounded in her belief that connectedness facilitates a better understanding of self and others, and is a powerful tool to address and change current social issues. Through her work, she shares and visually dissects the most naked and personal of the life experiences of herself and others on the grounds that emotions which are most personal are often universally felt. She aims to interrupt the mainstream feelings of disconnection, indifference, bias, and “-isms”, through showing that underneath, we are alike, thus seeking to humanize that which has become dehumanized or alienated.
