Hanneke is an Amsterdam based artist and designer. In 2002 she graduated in photographic design at the Academy of Arts and Design St. Joost in the Netherlands. Although her degree says photography, she has also become well versed in apparel design as well as creating her own fine art.
HANDIEDAN’s mixed media artworks are a delicate cut and paste mixture wrapped in contemporary antiquity. She meticulously combines classic pin-ups and movie images with paint, ink, yellowed sheet music, old fashioned playing cards, money, stamps, Chinese papers, old wood, rusty metal and doodles as a playful mixture of filigree and a newfangled amalgamation of imagery.
"Handiedan combines old and new and is heavy in process as well as content. She has developed her bold and flourish-heavy collage style into an intricately layered finale that you can't help but run your fingers over."
"I am enraptured by Handiedan’s collages, each piece is so beautifully complex it literally lures the viewer in, like an intricate puzzle."
