Gijs Assmann


Gijs explains

‘I wanted to investigate how little design you need creating a work of art. As small as possible.  So much art has been made about Maria. And people have been talking about that for so long. With a small idea, I wanted to bring her to life, use it as a subject.’


A bottle of ketchup and lots of glittering sequins from Gijs' daughters, that are the main ingredients of this piece of artwork.

Name it

Maria is the title of this artwork. What name would you give her or him?

A true romantic

Gijs, a Dutch artist, sends his lover handmade collages almost every day by post. Doesn’t that sound super romantic?
