Jacob Kanbier (Leiden, November 15, 1949 - Amstelveen, January 4, 2020) was a Dutch painter. In 1985 he started his education at the art academy in Amsterdam, but art education did not appeal to him, so that he is largely self-taught. Kanbier is mainly inspired by Willem de Kooning and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Following in the footsteps of these artists, he mainly makes 'rough' work in an 'explosive' creative process, with the name 'live-action painting'. He counts himself among the neo-Symbolists. He collaborated with related artists such as Justus Donker and the After Nature group of Peter Klashorst. In 1987 Kanbier had his first solo exhibition at Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden and performed in an 'action-painting show' at the Boulevard of Broken Dreams in Amsterdam. Herman Brood, Jules Deelder and Simon Vinkenoog also took part. In 1989 he presented the Manifesto of Neosymbolism in the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam). After periods in Paris, Prague and Friesland, Kanbier worked in his native city of Leiden. His work is part of the art collections of, among others, Queen Juliana, Prince Willem-Alexander, the Senate building in The Hague, Museum De Lakenhal, Wim Kok, Hedy d'Ancona and Felix Rottenberg.
