For over 25 years, Maarten Vrolijk, (1966, Oss, The Netherlands) has been one of the internationally successful artist who make do without an extroverted distancing effect in their creative work. The Amsterdam-based artist and designer considers it important to elaborate on the simple, unequivocal nature of a product. His art language is so unusual because it consciously plays with shapes, colours and materials in an uncontrived way.; they should also make people’s everyday lives that bit more beautiful through the many little details that evoke the unexpected.
Many of his works has been collected and exhibited in several renowned international museums including the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Groninger Museum.
