Tessel van der Putte is a Dutch visual artist who works with vibrant color contrasts and abstraction of form, influenced by cubism and symbolism. With a background in human rights and climate change studies, she has made female bodily autonomy and water important themes in her work, as well as eco-feminism.

Tessel has exhibited her work across different cities in the Netherlands (Rotterdam, Elburg, Amsterdam & The Hague) and has published work about Climate Change and sea-level rise, with a particular focus on Indigenous cultures and the leadership role of women. She is also a board member of the Genevan-based NGO Greenseed.
