After graduating as an illustrator from the St. Joost art academy in 2008, Maarten has worked for bands, record labels, magazines and music venues, and occasionally exhibits his work. Since 2009 Maarten has regularly contributed art to the Roadburn festival in Tilburg.
Maarten's primary focus as an illustrator is on creativity and authenticity. He uses his sketchbook and personal interests as a starting point, where every idea is equally important, and anything can ignite a spark. His goal: to create powerful, expressive images that are recognizable and unique. His work is known for its surreal, experimental, almost dreamlike quality.
