Artist in Residence Suite

In the spirit of enabling discovery, the Conservatorium plays host to the Art Months in the hotel and also builds long-term collaborations with local artists for its Residence Suites. The atmosphere of these suites is that of an Amsterdam apartment, with a balcony overlooking the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam’s world renowned contemporary art museum. This is exactly why the hotel chooses to work with local artists, to celebrate the destination and heritage.

The Residence Suites have been transformed into the Artist in Residence Suites and decorated by the artist themselves.

Discover our Artist in Residence suites for yourself and enjoy a stay in Amsterdam like no other.

Meet the Artist

Jasper Krabbé is a Dutch contemporary painter based in Amsterdam who exhibites his work worldwide and stems from four generations of painters.

Krabbé’s work often reflects memories of places, events and people. Not as clear images, but in a way memories usually appear: disrupted by other images, and disturbances, incomplete, without logic and never unambiguous. Krabbé's process of painting is not lineair towards a certain end; it's rather a sublimation of recollected images in an intuitive process. In his works on paper he often uses materials he finds along his way: envelopes, wrapping paper, pages out of books and encyclopedias. With this approach he mingles the original function and meaning of the material with his own personal images. A large portion of his work consists of Portraits but also themes such as dreams and poetry function as a point of departure. His work is admitted in the public collections of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and in many private collections worldwide.

He recently opened the Random House in Amsterdam, a place where fashion (his own label Quodnon) art and interior collide.
