Annet Berende is a talented artist from Amsterdam. She creates artwork that is reminiscent to Andy Warhol’s portraits of celebrities during his time. Annet creates portraits of celebrities that she has been infatuated with throughout her life: Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Mandela, Morgan Freeman, and Barack Obama to name a few.
Also, Berende’s work brings to mind a mesh of artistic historical figures and their styles like the impressionists Van Gogh and Gaugin, and the Cubist painter Jean Rousseau. Berende defined her passion for painting comes from being surrounded by art her entire life.
“I grew up with art . My father was a painter and many people in my family have some involvement with art. I like to play with colors as well. I always make a panting based upon my feelings. I never know before I paint what colors I will use. The end results is always a surprise for me.”
