  • Mart de Brouwer  (+)

    Biography : Born: 26 december 1955. Education: Graphic School Eindhoven - department Repro. Art education: autodidact Mart is well known for his wall objects, which are unusual and attractive to the eye. He developed a new technique of painting and using fire. The process starts by using qualitatively material like wood. Mart burns it and finally paints it. In the clip on this website you can watch Mart using his technique and get a glimpse of the process. In addition to the burned and painted wall objects, Mart makes puzzled objects, for which he uses many colors of paint. Creating other interior objects like tables, mirrors, cabinets and many others is also part of Mart's expertise. He also provides the service of restyling existing objects. While restyling, he maintains his own creativity in a natural way.

  • Mathijs Siemens  (+)

    Biography : Growing up in a creative family, Mathijs Siemens (Amsterdam, 1982) always had a thing with creating visual surrealistic worlds. In his teenage years he made many drawings, developing in style, from street-art to more figurative and surrealistic drawings in his twenties. After the art academy he became more interested in architectonical perspectives and the function of color, depth, and layers in art. In that period Mathijs Siemens began to work with different materials, such as resin, wood and foam board, and started adding 3-dimensional elements to his artworks. His style had already transformed to a more surrealistic style, so eventually the next logical thing for him was to free himself from all realistic boundaries in art and make the step towards abstract art. ​ "The space between 2 and 3-dimensional is an exciting element to work with. It can trick the human mind and vision and compositions come to life for the eye of the beholder". ​ The idea behind the collection is to explore new found techniques using thread as main material. My aim is to create an abstract world, in each peace, which can influence the human perception in a unique way. The artworks are a playful combination between different elements. Lines and color come to life when put in different perspectives. Layers of thread on top of each other, combined with color and depth, form a hypnotising and unique play for the eye. It’s not only about what you see on the surface. It's more about what it does to the senses.
