Jan Tervoort, born 1955, a Dutch writter from origin, had his atelier in Bali since 1995 and returns to the Netherlands in 2005. A self-taught artist who favours the experiment. Around 2007 his magic-realistic work (“People of the Labyrinth” for which he was nominated by Saatchi Gallery Worldwide) changes into abstract. He was a participant in the Amsterdam Light Festival with an ode to his teacher the Tjech masterpainter Lois Kapr.

His work can be found in prestigious collections worldwide. He did solo-exhibitions in international gallery’s and museums also in China and he is invited by the owner of the largest culture and art company of China; Huayi Brothers for a hugh artproject  in 2020. (Huayi is the buyer of the sunflowers of van Gogh)

China inspires him and especially Calligraphy. He made a Hong Kong exhibition based on Vincent van Gogh and sold his line-works (2008 – 2016) in London and New York and in Dubai to a famous fashion designer. Parts of his artworks are used in a hugh translucent ceiling in Dubai made by the worldfamous Marcel Wanders. Several trendwatchers mention his work on their websites.


He is represented by an international agent from Israel but he is now experimenting to do the artworld on his own. In Copenhagen he will show some of his experiments from his written art. Most of them were never shown before.

Appr. 15 years ago the artist decided that he had to develop a limited way of working. He said goodbye to the brush and started casting paint from coffee cups. Floatisme was born. Floatisme brought him closer to himself. It created more freedom for him then he had ever experienced before.
