Maarten's artworks entail explorations into the miracles and absurdities of reality, often resulting in pieces that range from melancholic to playful. He blends analogue materials with digital techniques, utilising his eye for clean aesthetics and compositions.
Maarten finds enjoyment in the collage technique due to its quality to evoke a profound sense of nostalgia. The artwork represents an imperfect memory, pieced together by imagination while leaving room for poetic exaggeration. Essentially mirroring how our own memories function.
