The artist name Joadoor labels the work of two Dutch painters, Ger Doornink and Hans-Jochem Bakker. Both men are conceptual artists, painters and photographers. Their work is characterized by Neo-Classical style that covers works of various themes.
Joadoor became fascinated with vanished cultures, the ancient Classics and the mysticism of the Pharaohs during his extensive travels around the world. Together, Joadoor explore ancient and classical art styles and develop new, contemporary images that are distinctively Joadoor. Their paintings show a mystical world and vivid cultures, such as in Symbiosis I and II, which displays their adeptness at mixing medium and method. The rich colors and elegant cultures that Joadoor bring to their paintings and photographs set them apart as Contemporary artists. This is reflected in his work which is an inspirational mix of Oriental, classical Roman, Egyptian and African design and medieval Gothic traditions. Florals and wildlife animals are another area of expertise and more recently this versatile artist has developed a new and very different contemporary ‘lounge’ style. After a busy life in the cosmopolitan cities of Milan and Tokyo Joadoor has now moved back to the Netherlands and has a large studio in the cultural heart of Amsterdam.
