About DutchArtMosaics & Maartje de Boer

DutchArtMosaics

is a mosaic studio in Borculo in the Netherlands.

Here the ancient mosaic craft is practiced in a new style. Portraits, but also works of art that display famous Dutch or other themes in a new and sustainable way. Unique decorative works for people who want to make their home or work environment more beautiful in a special way.

Commissioned work is always a possibility. But DutchArtMosaics can also help you if you want to get started with creating a mosaic yourself. If you need a pattern-drawing for your mosaic, you've come to the right place.

Maartje de Boer has started her mosaicworkshop in 2016.

 

"For a long time I was looking for a creative outlet. In 2007 I discovered the art of mosaics at a workshop with the Italian mosaic artist Luciana Notturni in Ravenna. I got hooked immediately and wanted to master the craft. To achieve this, I followed the 'Art Craft Mosaic’ training at the Municipal Academy of Fine Arts in Wilrijk (Belgium) from 2008 to 2012, led by Gino Tondat. With this knowledge at hand, I have developed my own style in the following years, with mostly figurative works."

"Typical of my work is the free, expressive style in which I display the character of the subject or the moment. But also the materials I use: especially bricks and tiles that I find outside, on the street. There is a vast splendor of colors and materials literally up for grabs, and it makes the world a bit cleaner and more durable too. "

"What continues to fascinate me with mosaic art is the creation of a unique, inspired work of a collection of loose stones. Through the use of color and lines the works get depth and detail without losing the essence of mosaic. Mosaic is a fantastic medium to express reality and my emotions in a different way. "

Do you have those places in your home or in your work environment that you look at every day and that keep annoying you every time? Or that could use a beautiful piece of art because right now they are so boring or empty? 

Those places can be a beautiful, positive eye-catcher, an unique work of art that you want to look at every day.
