Jana Jacob was born in Ravensburg, in the very south of Germany, in 1982. With a German mother and a Thai father, she was always travelling a lot and experiencing the different realities of cultures. Moving around all the time, she lived in Ibiza, Stuttgart, Paris, San Francisco in an  Artist Commune, New York, Florida, and finally Berlin, where she currently works and lives with her family. After focusing on Video Art during her studies at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart and at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy France, Jana Jacob finally turned back to painting, which fascinates her since her early childhood.
