Pedro Bakker (1952) lives and works in Friesland (NL). He studied Fine Arts and Philosophy in Amsterdam. At first he was a painter and alternately a writer upon art. In 2006 his participation in an "existentialist retreat/Militant Bourgeois" changed his artistic attitude, from painting a meaningless subject to drawing an autobiographical theme. In 2010 he obtained his MA Artistic Research at the University of Amsterdam with a graduation, solo show MUM at W139. Recently he received the 4-year grant "Proven Talent" (Established Artist) from the Mondriaan Fund to work on his, long term, project "New Illusions of Love".
