JitsArt was founded in 1959 by the artist Jits Bakker. Since 2009, his son Tibo van de Zand has been the official co-director, and since 2014, he assumed responsibility of owner and director. As an artist duo, father and son worked for years on various projects in the Netherlands and abroad. They worked in studios in, among others, the Bilt, the Ardennes and Andalusia. From the historic studio “De Kooi”, the adjoining sculpture labyrinth and the studio in southern Spain, the activities of JitsArt continue to this day.
